About Us – Mission
We, the Benedictine Sisters of Mt. Angel, are women responding to the call to live in community according to the Gospel and the Rule of St. Benedict. Together we seek God in a balanced life of prayer and work, simplicity, hospitality, and service. While our vow of stability leads us to a special care for the people of the local area, we are deeply conscious of sharing the universal mission of the Church.
We take three vows at the time of profession:
- Stability, a lifelong commitment to this particular community of women;
- Fidelity to Monastic Life, a promise to seek God by embracing the pattern of living inspired by the Rule of Benedict; and
- Obedience, a commitment to attentive listening, discernment and response to the will of God.
