The Federation of Saint Scholastica, comprised of 17 Monasteries of
Benedictine Women, was established on February 25, 1922.
Great news of joy from Holy Name Monastery in St Leo, Florida. Today the community postulated Sister Roberta Bailey to serve another six year term. As federation president I agreed to dispense the impediment of serving as prioress beyond the 12 year maximum set out in Call to Life.
Sister Roberta has previously served one 6 year term and one 4 year term. She will serve an additional 6 year term. God bless her for her willingness to serve. Thank you, Roberta!
A word of thanks also to Kathy McNany (Baltimore) and Marcia Ziska (Atchison) who served as co-facilitators of the election discernment process here.
Rejoice with the Sisters of St Benedict Monastery in Pittsburgh on the re-election today of Sister Karen Brink as their prioress. This will be Sister Karen’s second term.
Thank you to Sister Karen for her YES to further service of her sisters, as she continues to hold the place of Christ in the monastery.
Sister Sylvia Ahr has been appointed Administrator of St. Scholastica Monastery in Boerne, TX, while prioress Sister Frances Briseno, recovers from a stroke.
The Federation of St. Scholastica will celebrate 100 years in 2022. As a means of sharing Benedictine life as a vision unfolding, the Federation is offering a multi-featured website to share our life and values. Click here. Be sure to sign up to receive alerts when new content is posted.
