Girls, God and Good Times (3G) Camp Open for Registration

Do you have a daughter, granddaughter, or niece who is in grade 4–12, loves God, and would enjoy a unique camp experience? Registration is open for Girls, God and Good Times (3G) camp! During 3G camp, campers will enjoy many activities including meeting the Benedictine sisters and learning about their way of life, praying lectio divina, making arts and crafts, swimming, playing outdoor nature games, visiting the monastery museum and gift shop, attending Mass, and eating and staying in a residence hall at the College of Saint Benedict. Come join the fun!


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.

Prayer Requests

We would like to hear from you!

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.

Daily Meditation for May 19, 2022

According to the National Day calendar, tomorrow, May 20, is Be a Millionaire Day. How do you think you’d feel if you were informed that you just won a million dollars? WOW…most of us would jump for joy and scream, “I can’t believe it!” Most likely you’d feel blown away. How could I be so lucky? Maybe you’d start to think of how you’d use the money. AND—YET—with a bit of reflection—maybe each of us would realize that we ARE millionaires. If we have good health—that indeed is worth millions. If we have poor health—most likely we get tender care and have good family and friends to respond to your needs. We are indeed rich in so many ways—having good friends, family, parents, grandchildren, a place we call home, beauty of nature, sunshine and rain. We are millionaires when we compare ourselves with the people of Ukraine. We have so many reasons to celebrate Be a Millionaire Day tomorrow.
