Elementary and Secondary Education

Since the earliest days in the history of Sacred Heart Monastery, beginning at Maria Rickenbach, Switzerland, the sisters have been involved in education. This ministry has been at schools in North and South Dakota, Nebraska and Colorado with some of the earliest schools being on the Standing Rock Reservation in Dakota Territory. Having the opportunity to teach Catholic values and beliefs and all subjects in a Catholic environment have been important aspects of this ministry for all who have helped form elementary and secondary students in their faith, learn a variety of subject matter and prepare them to serve others and God. Many Sisters continue their teaching careers by helping students at the college or by tutoring adults working at Ability Services in Yankton.
