As part of a yearlong celebration of their 125th anniversary, the Olivetan Sisters of Holy Angels Convent in Jonesboro, Ark., celebrated a special Solemnity of St. Benedict on March 21.
We share a special connection to these wonderful women – our monasteries were founded by sisters who traveled from Maria Rickenbach in Switzerland.
