St Benet's Institute

St Benet's Institute

Building upon the Benedictine understanding of community, hospitality and the gift of discernment, St. Benet’s Hall established the St. Benet’s Institute to provide a focus on issues of Faith, Leadership and Dialogue.

The St. Benet’s Institute aims to encourage better understanding and co-operation between various faith leaders, academics, policy-makers and the wider public by creating a forum for interdisciplinary dialogue, research and cross-sectoral engagement. St Benet’s Institute draws on the learning and experience of these various traditions and disciplines to address some of our global human challenges and where possible provide policy recommendation and change.
