Our Mission

The Benedictine Sisters of Mount St. Scholastica are women rooted in the Benedictine charism who seek God and share our living tradition. We are a community of 140 women called by our monastic profession to a balanced life of community, prayer, and ministry. Our ministry flows out of monastic living and focuses on empowering women. Our hunger and thirst for justice and peace focuses on works of charity as we respond to the root causes of injustice.

Be Our Guest

In chapter 53 of The Rule of St. Benedict we read: "All guests who present themselves are to be welcomed as Christ, for He Himself will say: I was a stranger and you welcomed me." (Matt. 25:35) We hope you will enjoy our web offerings and one day be able to visit us and be refreshed by the hospitality we offer through our prayer and communal living "That in all things God may be glorified."
