The Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery's Response to the Corona Virus Pandemic
We, the Sisters, have determined that we will close our monastery for the foreseeable future, at least through April 30th, due to the concerns for our monastic membership and the greater community at large.
We will not be receiving guests, friends, family, Oblates, tour groups, volunteers, and those who patronize our monastery gift shop or other ministry outreach.
We will follow the procedures/timeline as set by our Diocese.
Should someone wish to purchase items from our monastery gift shop, this may be done online and or call the gift shop manager.
There will be no public religious services or any event during this time. Please follow us on our social media for further information updates.
Our paid employees will be screened daily to assure their health and safety as our concern is not only for our membership but for the needs of all with whom we work and minister.
We continue to hold our local community and our world in prayer during this difficult time.

Believing in a God unseen
Walking where otherwise I would not dare
Reaching out into the darkness
Knowing a loving hand is there
Risking to try things not tried before
Loving when being left alone
Out of events
Wishing the best for others when not feeling
Hoping for life eternal while struggling
All builds up the gift of Faith
As life continues day after day.
Years have passed and the walls of the once pristine building have deteriorated, but that hasn't thwarted the sisters' commitment to the surrounding community. High on the hill the sisters continue to be a faithful presence and participant in the happenings of those around them.
Events & Retreats are currently unavailable at this time.
