In January, several of our Sisters attended a workshop hosted by the Sisters of Mount Scholastica in Atchison, Kan. The workshop focused on the benefit and drawbacks of limitations in the life of a Benedictine monastery.

Sister Manuela Scheiba, OSB, from Alexanderdorf, Germany, spoke at the gathering of Benedictine Prioresses in Norfolk, Neb. Then on Monday, two sisters from Atchison drove Sister Manuela over the Missouri River to view our monastery and Conception Abbey.
Hopefully this will be the beginning of a lifelong friendship with Sister Manuela and her wisdom. We welcome both wholeheartedly.
