Higher Education

Working in higher education enables sisters to impart Benedictine values to the next generation of professionals. S. Kathryn Burt reflects that “One of the greatest gifts of being an educator is observing the growth of another individual towards becoming who God is calling them to be.”

Sisters are currently teaching in the education, religious studies, nursing, math, music and art departments, and also work as staff members at Mount Marty College, a sponsored ministry of the Yankton Benedictines. S. Lynn Osika is Assistant Librarian and S. Rose Marie Maly is currently the Director of Campus Ministry at Mount Marty College. S. Marietta Kerkvliet is VP of Mission at Mount Marty College. Sisters have also worked at other area colleges.
