Birthplace of St Benedict

Birthplace of St Benedict

Beneath the monastic church in Norcia is the crypt which marks the site of the birthplace of St Benedict and Scholastica.

Justin Leedy is the aspirant monk who would like to join the young community who are resurrecting Benedictine life at the birthplace of St Benedict in Norcia, Italy.

During my visit to Italy I was blessed to visit the community and Brother Philip told me about Justin. He said, “He’s a serious guy and we really think he’ll make it here. But he’s got college debt. Could you help to tell people about his needs?”

Meet Justin here on his video and with just a click you can donate to help defray his college debts so he can join the novitiate in Norcia.

You can also help by sharing this post on your social media and helping to talk up Justin’s appeal.

This really helps much and it will only take a minute of your time to share on Facebook and Twitter.

Let’s help send Justin to Norcia!
