Dear Friends, Family Members, Employees, Alumnae, Oblates, and Volunteers of St. Scholastica Monastery:

We are happy to report that the Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery are all COVID free following our recent testing and strict quarantine.

It has been four months since St. Scholastica began to shelter in place to avoid the spread of COVID-19 in the community, and we are grateful that no sisters have been infected.

With this happy news, we will continue our practice safety and take continued precautions to prevent the virus's spread.

Every sister and all of our on-site employees have been tested. If anyone has been in contact with the community and holds concern, we encourage you to please get tested.

We thank you for your prayers for our employees and us during this challenging time!

The monastery will continue to be CLOSED to the public for the foreseeable future, at least through December 1st, including Hesychia House of Prayer, in New Blaine.

Thank you very much for your prayers and support of us here at St. Scholastica Monastery.

Weekly Reflection - January 30, 2021

Holy Mother Scholastica
Sr. Macrina Wiederkehr, June 12, 2008, Sacro Speco, Subiaco, Italy

Holy Mother Scholastica,
May the love that drew tears from your eyes
prime the well of my own love.
Instill in me a great yearning
for frequent holy conversation
with members of my community.

Benedict and Scholastica,
twin lovers of Christ,
enable us, your disciples,
to blossom with fidelity
to the monastic way of life.
Make our hearts overflow
with the unspeakable
sweetness of love,
that we may prefer
nothing whatever to Christ.
