Formation Visit to St. Benedict’s Monastery

The women in Formation at St. Scholastica Monastery and their Directors, Sister Michelle and Sister Donna, had an enriching adventure on the weekend of April 15 to 18.  They were invited to St. Benedict’s Monastery in St. Joseph, Minnesota, to meet and get acquainted with others in Formation from monasteries located in St. Paul and Crookston, Minnesota; Rock Island, Illinois; and Bismarck, North Dakota, and to learn more about documents that American Benedictine women hold in common.

Sister Margaret Michaud was among those who collaborated to write the documents  Upon This Tradition and Wisdom from the Tradition, under the auspices of the Conference of Benedictine Prioresses.  She provided background on the documents and their significance.  In addition, the Formation women considered With Hearts Inclined which contains the norms for the Federation of St. Benedict and its member monasteries.
