Welcome to Mount Saint Benedict Monastery

Imagine a place where hospitality and love overflow. You distinctly feel the presence of God. You stand in awe of the beautiful surroundings. That place is Mount Saint Benedict Monastery.


We, the Sisters of Saint Benedict, Crookston, Minnesota, are monastic women committed to living the Gospel and the Rule of Benedict. We strive for awareness of God through prayer, service, and reverence for all creation in a spirit of peace and joy.



Scripture of the Day

Reading daily the liturgical scriptures of the day enlivens our faith and helps focus each day on Gospel living.

We invite you to share your prayer requests and ensure you that the sisters will be remembering you in prayer.

I ask that the Lord Jesus intervene in my daughter Samantha’s life for her highest good. That she is filled with the presence of the Holy Spirit and that God himself intercedes and places her on his path for her life. I pray Jesus himself protects her on her travels. That he keeps her safe and surrounds her with his Angels. Lead her to her highest good and may your will be done in her life. Lord, please protect her mind, body, soul and spirit. Give her wisdom and discernment in the company she keeps and all decisions. Surround her with believers and reignite her relationship with you, Father. Fill her with your joy and peace. Lord I give you my daughter and release her to your hands. Father may you be magnified and seen in theses circumstances and may your will which is good and perfect be done. Please bring her husband into her life when she gets home as well as a full time job. Please forgive her sins and bring her to salvation. Amen.

My husband's sibling cheated him and threw him out of the house. He married me after that, but the anger he has from this is taken out on me. O Lord, open a gate for me and send me financial blessing. Please lord, deliver my daughter and give her the spirit to be kind. Bless my sons and all my children with heavenly blessing.
