Sister of the Day: Sister Bridget (Romana) Durkin

 Sister Bridget (Romana) Durkin 1932-2016

Sister Bridget lived her entire monastic life at the Mount.  In whatever she undertook, she was as skillful as she was hardworking.  She loved the outdoors and especially the flower garden.  She was our sacristan for decades on end and we saw the artful touch and deft care she put into that work.  Her floral arrangements were symphonies.

This is the 100th Centennial of the Sisters of Saint Benedict of Crookston.  Because of our Centennial year, we are featuring a Sister of the Day every Weekday and memories of buildings and happenings on weekends throughout the entire year.   Take a “Peek Behind the Veil” and watch this space every day during the entire 2019 year!  To see past Sisters of the Day or Peeks Behind the Veil, click here:
