Sister of the Day: Sister Xavier Reeves

Sister Xavier Reeves  1878-1958   Founding member

Did she actually train to sing opera?  Was she part of a ballet troupe when she was very young?  Or was it the quality of her soprano voice and the grace with which she moved that teased out these conjectures?   Sister Xavier was born in Carthage, Ohio, entered religious life in Duluth and was a registered nurse and was among the sisters who founded Mount Saint Benedict community.

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:
