With Grateful Hearts, We Celebrate 150 Years
Welcome to our new web site! It was created as part of the celebration of our 150th year of presence as Atchison Benedictines here at Mount St. Scholastica. We have many different events planned for the coming year and we hope that you will be able to participate with us in one or more of them. Be sure to take a look at our calendar of events and make plans to join us for some of the festivities. If you are not able to join us in person come back to our web site often to see pictures and read about all of the activities that are taking place.
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 144 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."
