What is Wisdom Connections?

The Wisdom Connections Timeless Tradition ↔ Technological Times program was established November 30, 2014 through a generous grant from the GHR FOUNDATION. The program was created for women’s Benedictine communities with women in initial formation.  At its inception, the mission of Wisdom Connections was to create a program of formation and education for newer members,  preserve the scholarship of our sisters and monks, and to develop an ongoing method of communication among the newer members and their Formation Directors through the use of technology. As of December 1, 2017, the grant funding has ended, and the scope of the program has moved to include all Benedictine communities across the world. Wisdom Connections is now membership-fee-based and allows for use in ongoing and initial formation for community members as well as use with Oblates with the community.
