THE MINISTRIES OF

ST. PAUL’S MONASTERY

We work in service to God and society. Our ministries grow out of, are nurtured by, and extend our prayer.

Our Ministries

As Sisters living by the Rule of St. Benedict we pray and work as a community and live as Christ in the World. Our life consists of praying and meditating both in community as well as in solitude.

We are fortunate for a family of supporters who have also discerned a life of faith and service.

St. Paul’s Monastery Ministries

St. Paul's Monastery offers a unique variety of ministries today that people can participate in. Our Benedictine Center is one of the most well-known in the area for hosting retreats. People walk away from our programs with a feeling of deep enrichment in their life and a new image of what it is like to be with the Sisters. There are many opportunities for people to come in to find peace and quiet, and we hope to you join us soon.

THE WORD OF OUR FOLLOWERS

Thank you – and thank you for offering this again next year. Having speakers with some caring age, wisdom as well as experience with centering prayer has been wonderful.

Colonial Church

To the Outreach Ministry to the Poor and Marginalized: I have gained a closer connection to my God through her (Sister Mary White) teaching. I hope that the church will allow her to keep coming back to help us.

Stillwater Prisoner

To the Benedictine Center: Thank you so much for arranging my stay. I have returned feeling enriched by all the amazing people I have met. I was particularly happy during my stay at St. Pau’s Monastery and fel beautifully cared for by Sister Virginia – and by everyone in the community. I was so intrigued by the labyrinth and its birth stages, and also so inspired by the art which is within the building. There is a particular ethos in the air at St. Paul’s Monastery – a kind of creative ambience and it started me writing again, which is so good.

As a retreat leader and teacher, I have been welcomed many times at Saint Paul Monastery. I could never do this work alone. The Sisters’ prayer has sustained our retreats. I’ve been blessed to work with Sam, Sr. Carol, and Sr. Virginia who provide expert spiritual direction for the retreatants. I’ve experienced the amazing presence and work of the Holy Spirit in this place.
