Mission

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.

Message From the Prioress

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!

Susan Rudolph, OSB
Prioress

Daily Meditation for August 4, 2020

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)
