Benedictine Associates are Catholic single women seeking God with the support of the monastic community while engaging in the ministries of St. Paul’s Monastery.

The Vowed Associates Process

Associate Mary Lou Kozmik

An Associate is willing to make an initial
1-year commitment to formation in Benedictine spirituality and community life and renews that commitment annually. Associates are responsible for their own personal expenses and health insurance and contribute their time and talent free of charge unless formally employed by the Monastery.

Associate Linda Anderson

If you are interested in becoming an Associate, contact Sister Karen Sames, OSB at
