Sisters of St. Benedict


Sisters of St. Benedict
(Ferdinand, Indiana)
Reflect and Relax
We are monastic women seeking God through community life, prayer, hospitality,
and service to others.

Guiding Principles by Which We Live

  • We seek God together in community and share a common mission and vision. Our life together unites and focuses our energies in spreading the Gospel.
  • We desire to be together in the dailiness of life by sharing our common prayer and table, our leisure, our talents, our joys and struggles.
  • We seek to recognize and develop the gifts and abilities of our sisters for the benefit of the individual, the community, and society.
  • We call each other to lives of moderation.
  • We strive to share and reverence all the goods of the monastery.
  • By the stability of our community life, we commit ourselves to each other and to seeking God at this time and in this place.

Retreats and Programs

Experience one of our programs or retreats and find yourself immersed in the transforming presence of God.

Is the world getting to you? Are your days filled with coping with one problem after another? Wouldn’t you really like to have some time to spend on what you want to do—and have others help you, instead of your having to solve everything? For once, let yourself go. Treat yourself to that program or retreat you’ve always been intrigued by.

If not now, when? It’s time. It’s your time. You deserve it.
