Message from the President
The Federation of St. Scholastica has a proud history of preservng the legacy of Benedictine monasticism as lived in its memeber communities. The twenty Benedictine communities of the Federation animate and extend the values of monasticism in their local geographic area and in the universal Church. The Federation provides opportunities for collaboration and cooperation among and between the communities and in the larger Benedictine family. We face the challenges of the present as we forge a heritage to pass on to future generations. The Federation is at the service of communities living the Benedictine tradition in ways that speak to our time in history. With that "good zeal"(RB:72) of Benedict we journey together.
