The Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration hosted the annual regional gathering of women in formation over the weekend at their Clyde, Mo., monastery. 

Seventeen women gathered for the weekend to discuss the topic “Saints: Past, Present and Future.” Sister Colleen Maura McGrane, OSB, Sister Lynn Marie D’Souza, OSB and Sister Dawn Annette Mills, OSB provided vital insight on the liturgy of saints, virtue and holiness.

“Our formation guests also had the opportunity to take a look at the recent renovations made to our main house, which included new guest spaces,” said guest coordinator Sister Sophia Becker, OSB. “We were grateful to have the space and opportunity to give hospitality to these women. Let us all remember to hold these women in prayer and to continue to pray for more vocations, especially during this Year of Faith.”

Region XIII includes women in formation from monasteries in Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri.
