Welcome to Gratitude Week! Every day from August 3–9, we will be sharing our gratitude with you through our website, social media platforms and email, so be sure to follow us! You also have a chance to receive a virtual blessing (personalized for use when you have a special event or celebration) from the sisters! Click the link below to register. THANK YOU!
We, the Sisters of the Order of Saint Benedict in St. Joseph, Minn., are a monastic community of women who seek God in our daily lives according to the Gospel and the Rule of Benedict. Through our ministry of prayer, work and community living, we listen and respond to the needs of the Church and the world.
Since we are not able to gather in person this year for Gratitude Day, we hope you will join us in celebrating Gratitude Week, which will take place virtually August 3–9. Throughout the week, we will be sharing our gratitude with you through our website, social media platforms and email, so be sure to follow us. Thank you for your generous gifts of time, talent and treasure. We are grateful for you!
We will be randomly selecting one person each day of Gratitude…

Our primary work is prayer, and we include the petitions we receive in our daily prayer of the Liturgy of the Hours. We also post prayer requests on a community bulletin board seen by the sisters every day. Fill out the request form to let us know how we can hold you in prayer.
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to one hope when you were called—one Lord, one faith, one baptism;
one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
(St. Paul to the Ephesians 4:1–6)
