My Benedictine Legacy Planned Giving

My Benedictine Legacy

Help ensure that your support for the Sisters and their ministries will continue long into the future.

A Planned Giving Program

With the support of people like you, the Sisters of St. Benedict of St. Paul's Monastery have educated countless students, served in parishes and homes, welcomed all as Christ at the Monastery and wherever we have served, and shared our Monastic heritage through retreats and programs at our Benedictine Center. We are continuing to develop our legacy.

In addition to our Monastery, Maple Tree Monastery Childcare Center and Hill-Murray School, our campus also includes Tubman and CommonBond Communities. Our Sisters work with our partner organizations as employees, Board members and volunteers. We all live the Benedictine value of hospitality. All live Mother Benedicta Riepp’s vision of supporting children, women, and families. One of our legacies is this neighborhood of good works based on Benedictine values.

In order to support the care of our Sisters while sustaining the ministries of the Monastery long into the future, we are pleased to announce the introduction of My Benedictine Legacy, which allows friends of St. Paul’s Monastery to remember the Sisters in their planned and estate gifts.

Are you planning your legacy? Will your legacy continue your lifetime of good works and charitable vision? Would you like St. Paul’s Monastery to be part of your legacy? When you join My Benedictine Legacy of St. Paul’s Monastery, your good works will last in perpetuity.
