We are Benedictine women who Pray

Benedictine Women of Prayer

Together We Seek God


















¨We are women who believe that prayer is central to our lives as the Benedictine Sisters of Yankton.

¨We are women who gather together each morning, noon and evening to praise God in song, psalms and spoken prayer in the Liturgy of the Hours.

¨We are women of the Gospel who are nourished by Eucharist, and who in turn strive to be Eucharist to others.

¨We are women who spend time every day in personal prayer and lectio — the reflective and meditative reading of Scripture.

¨We are women who break open the scriptures through weekly faith-sharing.

¨We are women who “listen with the ears of our heart” to the Spirit’s call into the unknown future as TOGETHER WE SEEK GOD.
