St. Scholastica Feast Day

One of the ways the Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery celebrate St. Scholastica on her feast day (February 10) is to take donuts and juice boxes to The College of St. Scholastica to give to students, faculty, and staff.  A variety of donuts attracted many this year to indulge in a sweet breakfast and to pick up bookmarks and pamphlets about the patroness of  the Monastery and the College.

Donuts and Joice at CSS
Sister Mary Rae and Sister Mary Catherine tend the table of donuts and informational material about St. Scholastica.
The Sisters have done this every year and appear to enjoy the morning’s many brief exchanges with the people of CSS. St. Scholastica and her twin brother lived in the late fifth century.  Her brother was St. Benedict of Norcia, and he founded the Benedictine Order.  He also wrote The Rule which has guided the lives and prayer of Benedictine brothers and sisters and laypeople ever since.  St. Scholastica was a leader in the women’s monastic community.
