Monastery and Chapel access limited to Sisters and employees

April 1

In an abundance of precaution and to prevent the transmission of the coronavirus, we have decided to restrict access to St. Scholastica Monastery and Our Lady Queen of Peace Chapel.

A majority of Sisters are over 80, our corridors connect with the Benedictine Living Community next door, and Benet Hall within the monastery is a licensed assisted living facility.

We are following CDC and Minnesota Department of Health guidelines and proactively isolating the monastery to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to these susceptible populations.

Only Sisters, essential employees, and a limited number of volunteers will be allowed in the monastery buildings.

Access to the Monastery will be through the main entrance only from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Daily screening of persons coming into the building will be initiated at a station near the Information Desk.

Our prayers are with you as we face this new challenge… and your prayers would be appreciated for us.

Sister Beverly Raway, Prioress
