Who We Are

We are a community of Benedictine women called to witness God's gracious presence by:
 - building community wherever we are
 - praying the Liturgy of the Hours
 - offering hospitality and extending peace
 - responding to the changing needs around us in the fields of spiritual formation, health care and education.

We seek God by living in this cenobitic community under the Rule of St. Benedict and a prioress. In response to the call of the Church this Benedictine tradition made its Canadian foundation in Winnipeg in 1912.

As Monastic women inspired by the Gospel and the Rule of St. Benedict and guided by the documents of the Federation of St. Gertrude and our lived tradition and monastery norms- we are committed to model a contemplative stance to all of life. We call ourselves to listen and to respond as we pray and work with the people of God in restoring and transforming the human community- so that God may be glorified.

In 2012, St. Benedict's Monastery celebrates its 100th Anniversary!
Here are some photos of the celebrations...
