Sister Mary Elizabeth Schweiger

I grew up in Lenexa, Kansas, in a large family of 9 children, one of whom died as an infant.  I  entered Mount St. Scholastica right after high school in 1963.  Benedictine sisters taught me all through grade and high school, and my  teachers always seemed happy.  I wanted to be like them.  I worked in pastoral ministry for 20 years in the Kansas City area. After 12 years as sub-prioress of the community, I have worked as a staff member of Sophia Center. I am  the Director of Souljourners and Coordinator of the Oblate Directors of the Mount. I also serve on the Community Council, do spiritual direction, and offer retreats. In my free time, I like to make comfort crosses.
