Benedictine Sisters' Foundation
Our Charism and Mission Video









We believe our world needs women religious who are focused on seeking God within community and committed to serving God’s people.


We invite women who desire to joyfully seek God in community to join us in living out our charism and mission.




The Charism and Mission of Mother of God Monastery

We, the Benedictine women of Mother of God Monastery, are a monastic community with rural roots and a pioneering vision. Seeking God together in community is a primary Benedictine value; therefore we are hospitable and compassionate toward one another, and we empower one another to live joyfully. We strive for a balanced life of prayer, work, study and leisure.


Open to the Spirit and with listening hearts, we hear God’s call to live our monastic and personal gifts by inviting others to share our community life, by ministering to the people of God, by reverent stewardship of creation, and by bringing Gospel values into a multi-cultural world.
