Sr. Shawn Carruth Goes to God 

Sister Shawn, the community’s prioress, died suddenly after suffering a stroke on March 26. She was 77. Because of restrictions imposed to slow the spread of the coronavirus, her funeral was delayed. With some restrictions still in place, a Mass of Christian Burial will be held Thursday, August 6 at 11:00 a.m. in the chapel at Mount St. Benedict Monastery.  Attendance will be limited to Sister Shawn’s family, designated clergy and the Sisters of Mount St. Benedict. A video of the Mass will be available at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception’s website.
