Benedictine Sisters

Our Mission

We Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration are a monastic community called to a ministry of prayer, with a tradition of unceasing adoration of Christ in the Eucharist. As Benedictines we live under a Rule and a prioress. Each of our monasteries, with its distinct spirit and circumstances, unites the monastic charism with an orientation to the Eucharist in the service of the Church.

In this life of adoration Christ reveals himself in the charity, warmth and unity of a community formed by a common vision of faith. Nourished by the Eucharist, we recognize his presence in the “breaking of the bread” and the fellowship of our common table. - from the Constitution of the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration

We strive to witness to God’s presence in our world through our community life and by offering a welcoming space for silence, prayer and spiritual hospitality in a shared environment of monastic peace. - from our Mission statement

We have monasteries in two states: Missouri and Arizona. These monasteries are united with a central administration in the form of a congregation. Sisters in our congregation can live at either of our two monasteries.
