Girls Monastic Experience
The Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery held a Girls Monastic Experience on Saturday, April 9.  Twenty-one girls in third grade through sixth grade spent the day getting a taste of life at St. Scholastica Monastery.

At Morning Prayer with the Sisters

The girls joined the monastic Community at Morning Prayer, toured the Monastery, participated in games, completed an art activity, listened to presentations, and took part in discussions.

At the end of the day one of the sixth grade girls commented, “Before coming, I thought visiting the Monastery would be scary and something I wouldn’t like . . . but the next time I come I want to take a longer tour, visit more Sisters, play some games and look around outside.”

“Our humanity comes to its fullest bloom in giving. We become beautiful people when we give whatever we can give: a smile, a handshake, a kiss, an embrace, a word of love, a present, a part of our life...all of our life.”
