Clear Creek Abbey, a Bendectine community near Tulsa, Okl., will host its annual ‘work day’ on March 2.
The majority of the hunrdeds of volunteers that attend this day of prayer, hard work around the abbey, and religious community each year are from the Olakhoma area, but they have often been joined by a group of University of Dallas students in past years. Among the small group of UD students last year was theology graduate student Bethany Pedersen, who spoke highly of her time at Clear Creek.
“I would recommend the work day to anyone who would like a weekend of work, prayer, rest and companionship, really, to experience a taste of the spirituality of Saint Benedict,” Pedersen said.
Dr. Thomas Jodziewicz also recommended the work day.
“It’s a great way for students to serve others,” he said.
