Sacred Heart Monastery

Rooted in our rural heritage and growing in relationship with God and one another in monastic community, we live a life of prayer, work, and lectio by which we serve God and God’s people in our time and place.

Our Core Values


Seeking God in our prayer together and savoring the word of Scripture and listening for the Divine voice in the stillness of our own hearts.

Awareness of God

Building trustful and loving relationships with God, with one another, with planet earth, and with our deepest selves. 


Opening our hearts and our doors to those pushed to the edges of life: the sick, the needy, and the elderly.
