What Is It Like Working With the Sisters?
When you work with the sisters, you work in a place where gratitude, appreciation, and mutual admiration flourish. We are blessed to have each employee helping us fulfill our mission and live out fully our Benedictine way of life. How beautiful it is to know they think of us the same way.
As our sisters at Saint Scholastica Convent were exiting the chapel from Noon Prayer, there was a heartfelt surprise awaiting them. The employees had quietly lined up on both sides of the gathering area and were applauding and holding large signs that told of their appreciation and love for the sisters.
Staff followed the sisters into the dining room, where our nursing supervisor prayed a beautiful prayer of gratitude, appreciation and love for the sisters. In typical Benedictine fashion, the sisters responded by singing a blessing over the employees and thanking them for their presence and fine work among us.
Our staff also went to our memory care unit to thank the sisters there. It was a day full of deep gratitude and happy tears.
