Welcome to the Benedictine Sisters of St. Walburg Monastery Blog

     This is a new endeavor for the Benedictine Sisters of St. Walburg Monastery. The title comes from the Prologue of the Rule of St. Benedict, verse 45, in which Benedict says, "Therefore, we intend to establish a school for the Lord's service." And we intend to share some reflections from our lives in the school of the monastery. In this blog you will hear the voices of many sisters in the community and we hope that you will enjoy the diversity of this group of women who seek God together.    
     We look upon this endeavor as an extension of the traditional monastic virtue of hospitality and invite you to share in our prayer, our work and our journey together.   Sr. Deborah Harmeling, OSB
