Sister Kimberly Prohaska to be the Interim Administrator for 1 year
St. Scholastica Monastery in Fort Smith, Arkansas has been blessed with Sister Maria DeAngeli’s leadership as Prioress since 2009. She has guided the community into a new era with the construction of a smaller monastery to accommodate the Sisters’ physical and financial needs.
The Sisters were scheduled to elect a new Prioress in April 2019. At that time, the community was in major transition, having been in the new monastery only a couple months, still getting settled, and preparing for two major events - the auction and an open house. After consultation and reflection, the community decided to ask Sister Jeanne Weber, the President of the Federation of St. Gertrude, to postpone the election until January 2020 and to appoint an interim Administrator. Sister Jeanne met with the community on April 29 and announced that Sister Kimberly Prohaska will be the Administrator of St. Scholastica Monastery for up to one year, beginning June 8, 2019.
Sister Kimberly Prohaska celebrated her Silver Jubilee of monastic profession last year and currently serves as sub prioress and vocation director. We thank her for accepting this big responsibility and ask you to join us in praying for her.
