About Us


Who We Are

We are a growing community of Religious Women committed to monastic life as Benedictine Nuns.  Our 500 Sisters and dozens of Novices, Postulants and Candidates give daily witness to the Benedicinte motto of "Ora et Labora", prayer and work.

Founded 75 years ago our community life and prayer sustain our witness to Christ's presence wherever we live and work.
