Sister Mary Lou Dummer, OSB | Oblate Director


My name is Sister Mary Lou Dummer. I serve the Community of St. Paul’s Monastery as Director of Oblates. My role is to journey with women and men from all Christian Faith Traditions who are seeking a deeper relationship with God by following the Gospels and the Rule of St. Benedict. They do this with community and an awareness of God in their personal and community prayer – the two pillars of living the Benedictine Way of Life in the 21st Century.

I am honored to be with them on this spiritual journey as we listen to God with the ear of our heart – a God who is always with us and loves us.

"Listen and attend with the ear of your heart." Rule of Benedict, Prologue: 1
