Sister Nancy Rose Gucwa, OSB has been named director of development for the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration in Clyde, Missouri.

Sister Nancy Rose is originally from Staten Island, New York, and entered the Benedictine Sisters in 2006. She was a member of the first class that admitted women to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and graduated with a degree in general engineering in 1980. Sister Nancy Rose later earned a master’s of business administration degree from Golden Gate University.

After she completed her commitment to active duty, she spent several years in the banking and finance industry. She retired from the U.S. Army Reserves in 2008.

She made her first monastic profession with the Benedictine Sisters in 2009 and her final monastic profession in 2013. She has been a member of the correspondence department, helping with annual mailings and answering prayer requests, and assisting with donor relations in the development office.

She will continue her work in correspondence while managing the development office. As director, she will coordinate donor relations, consult with investment professionals and oversee charitable giving for all of the congregation’s monastic communities.

“I am deeply honored to have been entrusted with the responsibility of inviting all people to share in our ministry of prayer for the world,” Sister Nancy Rose said. “We welcome everyone to bring us their prayer intentions or to experience our Benedictine hospitality at our monasteries in Clyde or Tucson, Arizona.”
