The benefits of the new monastery include:

  • providing manageable space to enable the Sisters to focus on their ministries of prayer, community, hospitality, and service;
  • substantially lowering maintenance expenses and freeing resources for the service of God's people;
  • being near the nursing home where the Sisters needing skilled care will live, making daily contact and participation in community prayer possible;
  • allowing the Sisters to continue their presence and service in Fort Smith and to attract women to monastic life here.
