Six sisters from St. Scholastica Monastery took part in the Twenty-Sixth Federation Chapter of the Federation of Saint Benedict, held July 24-29, 2018 at Annunciation Monastery in Bismarck, North Dakota. Sisters Beverly Raway, Elizabeth Farias, Luella Wegscheid, Luce Marie Dionne, Edith Bogue and Lisa Maurer joined forty other Sisters from the ten member monasteries.
The Federation Chapter convened for governance work of the body. This included promoting the unity of the Federation, setting goals, and establishing general polices that aim to safeguard, promote, and tend the Benedictine cenobitic monastic life.
Along with attending to the work of the Chapter, the Sisters joined for prayer and Eucharist, enjoyed a picnic, were entertained by the River Rhapsody Chorus, and toured interesting areas of Bismarck.
