Sister Lisa Maurer – Seeking God as a Duluth Benedictine

First Blog

Hi!  I am Sister Lisa and I am blogging!  You may wonder who I am.  Well, I am a Benedictine Sister, a new Benedictine Sister (more on that another time).  I hail from Sleepy Eye Minnesota, of Little House on the Prairie fame.  Before coming to St. Scholastica Monastery I was an elementary school teacher and a high school coach.  I love Jesus, Twins baseball, my family, and friends.  I like to pray, laugh, watch Law and Order, and be in the great outdoors.

I came to the Duluth Benedictines here at St. Scholastica Monastery two years ago.  In that time I have grown in my monastic vocation as I continue to seek God.  I have learned lots and discovered many things about myself, the world, and my place in it.  All that I have experienced since coming to St. Scholastica has been a great gift, one beyond imagining.  Through all ups and downs, the trials and consolations, I am extremely grateful and filled with joy at all that God has offered me and continues to offer me. It will be my great privilege to share with you my journey as a first-year Sister.  I look forward to showing you bits and pieces of life here at the Monastery, giving you snapshots of how we work and pray…how we live!

With joy in Christ, ~Sister Lisa
