Earlier this month, we received a lovely letter from a representative of the Diocese of San Diego. Our former monastery, which we closed in 1992, now serves as the diocese’s central office.
“I thought you and your sisters would like to know that your beautiful chapel here in San Diego is still a holy place of prayer…..At special times all of us on the diocesan staff here (about 97 persons) have a day of reflection (in the chapel). February 10 was one such day. I smiled to myself thinking as we sang morning prayer together, ‘St. Scholastica would be pleased, and the Benedictine Sisters would be pleased as well.’ So I thought I would just let all of you know that the love and charism you lived and gifted in 3888 Paducah Drive, San Diego, is still alive and well.”
We are indeed delighted to know that our monastery, built in the 1960s with its “beacon light over the Pacific,” still serves as a home of reflection and prayer to others!
