Our prioress elect: Sister Beverly Raway

Prioress-elect Sister Beverly Raway, OSBThe Benedictine Sisters entered a sacred time of Discernment and Election on the evening of June 2, led by two experienced facilitators from other communities.  Discernment began by reviewing the Direction Statements that we wrote – with the same facilitators – in January. It is a process guided by the Holy Spirit, and focusing on what each Sister thinks best for the community, not just for herself.

On Friday afternoon, the Benedictine Sisters chose Sister Beverly Raway as Prioress-elect; her term of office begins with her installation on August 15, 2015 and continues until the installation of the next Prioress in 2021.  Oblates will remember Sister Beverly from her presentation about the ministry of Sponsorship during the February 2015 Oblate meeting.
