We are a community of nearly 100 Benedictine Women in Yank-ton, South Dakota, who work, pray, play and celebrate together. (link to next page) We are women who live in monastic community according to the Rule of St. Benedict with its 1500 years of lived tradition. (link to that page) We are women who profess obedience, stability and conversion of life. Link to profession video on vocation doors/monastic profession page We are women led by a prioress, who is the spiritual leader of our community, and one whom we believe is a voice and presence of Christ in our lives. We are women of the Dakota prairies who trace our roots to the Swiss community of Maria Rickenbach, nestled on the side of a picturesque Alp. (link to history) We are women, who since 1880, have ministered to God, God's people and each other begin-ning in Maryville, Missouri and then in the Dakotas and beyond. We are women who strive for a balanced life (Link to page on Balance) of prayer, work, and recreative leisure in our lives. We are women who share our hopes and dreams, our resources and talents, our challenges and sorrows as TOGETHER WE SEEK GOD. Watch Sacred Heart Monastery Video

We are Benedictine women of Yankton, SD, sharing our gift of seeking God through prayer, work, study and community life.

As Benedictine women of Yankton we are called each day to:

  • Embrace the Mystery of God
  • Live a life of transformation
  • Become more Christ-like
