We are the Catholic Benedictine Sisters of St. Mary Monastery.
Originally from Nauvoo, Illinois, the Benedictine Sisters moved to the
Quad-City area in 2001.
We serve in parishes, college campuses, homeless shelters, food pantries and in other ministries.
Benedictine Sisters live together with the purpose of seeking and serving God as one. Join Us!
Celebrating 50 years as Benedictines
Sisters Phyllis McMurray, Marlene Miller and Janet Cassidy celebrated their 50th Jubilees this weekend.
What an extraordinary accomplishment ... especially in our time.
That is, to choose to live in community where all is shared, prayer is scheduled and service a way of life is pretty counter-cultural today.
Yet, that is what these 3 women did, and continue to do.
Please join us in congratulating them ... and thanking them ... for their dedication and compassion. And if you're feeling a counter-cultural call of your own, call us!
