We Sisters sincerely value all the many ways you assist us. You pray for us, and we ask that you continue to pray for both our ministries and our monastic lifestyle. You contribute through generous gifts for our Benedictine work. And you volunteer your time as drivers, reception desk attendants, and companions to infirm Sisters. You help in many ways, and we welcome your involvement as both participants and benefactors as you join in our Benedictine life.

Our Community is blessed with lay volunteers who:

  •     serve as drivers or companions for Sisters with outside appointments
  •     welcome guests and callers by serving at the Information Desk
  •     add joy to the lives of our elderly Sisters by visiting them on Benet Hall
  •     enhance our liturgies with their musical talents
  •     serve as cashiers at Monastery Books and Gifts
  •     help keep our gardens groomed and productive
  •     help plan, organize, and put on the annual Christmas Bazaar

If you would like to share your time with the Sisters as a volunteer, please call Kathy Noble, Volunteer Coordinator, at (218) 343-3589 or email: volunteer@duluthosb.org.
