Sister Patricia Seipel

Growing up on a dairy farm in Northwest Missouri, I, Patricia Seipel, am one of seven children born to Roy and Pat Seipel.  The Benedictine Sisters of Mount St. Scholastica were my grade school teachers, hence the first experience I had with Benedictine Sisters.  Little did I know when I began first grade, that I too would one day be an elementary educator AND a Benedictine Sister.  Following almost 35 years of teaching which I loved, I have served in other Community ministries.  Presently, I enjoy working with our Sisters in initial formation, doing spiritual direction through our Sophia Center, working with our bees and other ministries around the house.  I make rosaries and love doing art work and arranging flowers.
