Updated on Sept. 27, 2021: The Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration have now been recognized as a Silver Level Award recipient, which indicates at least 80 percent of their workforce has been vaccinated against COVID-19.


The Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration in Clyde, Missouri, have been honored for their efforts to combat the spread of COVID-19 by achieving a high rate of vaccination within their organization.

The Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s COVID Stops Here campaign gave the BSPA the Bronze Level Award, which indicates it has at least 70 percent of its workforce vaccinated against COVID-19. The COVID Stops Here campaign celebrates workplaces in the state that are leading the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and to encourage more organizations to join their ranks. 

“The COVID-19 vaccine is Missouri’s pathway to recovery,” said Daniel P. Mehan, president and CEO of the Missouri Chamber. “In order to finally put this virus behind us, we need Missourians to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Together we can stop this virus.”

High vaccination rates are especially crucial to the Benedictine Sisters. Their monastery has been closed to the public since March 2020. Even though the Sisters and most of their employees are vaccinated, the monastery remains closed until vaccination rates climb in the area in order to protect immunocompromised members of the organization.
