|The above are some of the many ways to support our monastic lives and ministries at St. Scholastica Monastery. Throughout the years Sisters have come from various backgrounds and from many states throughout the Midwest—from Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, Michigan, and Iowa, certainly. But Sisters have also come to our monastic community who were born or raised in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Nebraska, Delaware, California, Ohio, New Jersey, Arizona, Maine, Louisianna, and Canada. Many in recent years have discovered our community via this web site. Then by contacting us, they have had opportunities to obtain more information and/or to visit the Monastery.
