What does St. Benedict have to do with workparty?

Pray and work (ora et labora) refers to the monastic practice of working and praying. It is generally associated with its use in the Rule of St. Benedict. Workparty is applying this concept to parish life at Church of the Redeemer.

Church of the Redeemer

Community life at Redeemer centers on worship in the Episcopal traditionArt and music vitally deepen this worship. Our faith expresses itself with service to people, locally to internationally.

Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 Northeast 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. We are a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside.

The Episcopal Church welcomes you.
