Mercy & Grace Through Prayer

Get to know the Sisters

Welcome to the home, history, and mission of the Benedictine Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery. We are a community of Benedictine monastic women who seek God through our response to the Gospel challenge and the Rule of St. BenedictWe live a contemplative/active life grounded in liturgical and personal prayer, in lectio divina, with time for silence and solitude. At St. Scholastica Monastery, it is a life balanced by work, study, and leisure.

Sister Beverly Raway, Prioress

In a spirit of Benedictine hospitality, we greet you with peace and invite you to explore our way of life here at St. Scholastica Monastery.

—Sister Beverly Raway, Prioress
