Gratitude Weekend 2021

Unfortunately, we decided to cancel our plans for an in-person Gratitude Day 2021 due to the continued prevalence of the COVID-19 pandemic…but, our gratitude to you has NEVER stopped. From the bottom of our hearts, the sisters at Saint Benedict’s Monastery and Saint Scholastica Convent exclaim THANK YOU to all of our generous donors, volunteers, oblates, employees, and supporters! We will be sharing our gratitude to you during our virtual Gratitude Weekend from Friday, August 13, through Monday, August 16. Connect with us here and on our social media channels! Links to each channel can be found in the upper righthand corner of the website.

Friday, August 13

Saturday, August 14

In a time where things were uncertain and we didn’t know what the future held, we were blown away by your continued generosity and trust in our mission and ministries. Thank you to all of our 2020–2021 donors!

Sunday, August 15

In July, we mailed out cards of gratitude to a large group of our faithful donors and supporters, each enclosed with a prayer request card to fill out and return to the monastery. MANY of these prayer cards have been returned to us, and we are so grateful that you trust us with your prayer intentions. Thank you for being pillars to our mission!

P.S. We apologize if you did not receive a card. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to handle as many cards as we would like. Please know how important you are to the sisters, our ministries, and mission!

Monday, August 16

On behalf of all the sisters at Saint Benedict’s Monastery and Saint Scholastica Convent, Prioress Sister Susan Rudolph would like to share a message of gratitude with you, our friends and supporters. You’ll also get to enjoy a breakdown of our donations received from July 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021. In a year as uncertain as this past year as been, we have been continually blessed by your abundant generosity!
