St. Scholastica was known as the twin sister of St. Benedict, founder of Western monasticism.  We know of her through the writings of St. Gregory the Great in his book, Dialogues, Book II: St. Benedict. She became a part of religious life at an early age and became abbess in the convent near her brother’s monastery at Monte Cassino.  St. Gregory has a couple of touching stories of St. Scholastica and her brother in his book.  St. Scholastica is the patron saint of our Monastery and College.  Today will be a special day of celebration for everyone!

We invite you to join the Sisters at prayer on this special day:

The Eucharist service begins at 11:30 a.m. Evening Prayer is at 5:20 p.m.

“Listen carefully, my child, to your master's precepts, and incline the ear of your heart. Receive willingly and carry out effectively your loving father's advice, that by the labor of obedience you may return to Him from whom you had departed by the sloth of disobedience.”
