For over 25 years, Sisters from Sacred Heart Monastery have been going to the Federal Prison Camp on Christmas Day and singing at Mass with the inmates.
Sisters help with Sunday Mass and Bible study at the Federal Prison Camp in Yankton; several have been on team for “Residents Encounter Christ” retreats in the state prisons while others have prison pen-pals.
Outreach — it’s all an opportunity to see the face of Christ in our neighbor. Sister Kathryn Burt is one of several Sisters who mentor girls through the Big Friend, Little Friend program in Yankton.
Sisters Raise Awareness on Human Trafficking Issue – Last year the Monastic Council distributed a questionnaire about social justice areas that we at Sacred Heart Monastery as a community would be interested in focusing on 2016-1017. As a community we decided to focus on human trafficking and the Death Penalty. The Social Justice Committee was asked to assist with these choices. The monastery has begun this focus. We encourage others to become educated about this national and state problem, to be aware of one’s surroundings and those who are suspicious, and to get involved in helping stop this crime.
