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.
