We believe that the divine presence is everywhere . Rule of Benedict
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!
Making Palm Sunday Personal
By Sister Catherine Cleary, OSB
The only honorable and appropriate response to the events on Palm Sunday is to fast, pray and empty ourselves for the less fortunate.
Nothing we do can change Christ’s suffering this week, nothing we do can “pay him back.”
But in our own way, given our own particular circumstances, we can imitate Jesus’ generosity.
New Volunteer Program!
We are debuting our new volunteer program here at the monastery.
It's for women and men, 21 years of age and over, who wish to live with the monastic community for a period of 2 weeks - 1 year.
The purpose? To deepen your relationship with God by praying with and working alongside the Benedictine Sisters.
