BENet is the regular gathering of the International Commission on Benedictine Education (ICBE).
BENet 2019 is hosted by Good Samaritan Education. Good Samaritan Education is responsible for ten incorporated colleges of the Good Samaritan Benedictine tradition in Australia. We are excited to welcome you to share in our culture and our local experience of Benedictine education.
Australia as the setting for BENet 2019 invites you to explore the fusion of ancient and new in the Benedictine tradition as well as in Australian society and culture. The theme, Benedictine wisdom beneath the Southern Cross, has been chosen to express this fusion and to highlight the richness and blessings it will bring. Hosted by Good Samaritan Education, BENet 2019 will explore new models of governance in education embracing the diverse expressions of Benedictine spirituality which visitors from every continent and all over Australia will bring.
