The Benedictine Sisters
The Benedictine Sisters arrived in Guthrie, Oklahoma Territory just a few months after the Oklahoma Land Run. On the first day of school in the tent city, six students arrived for classes; two of them were Catholic. This first day of ministry in Oklahoma is characteristic of the ministry of the Benedictine Sisters since 1889. The Sisters have always served people of all faiths. It is their belief that Catholic Benedictine education should be offered to all those who desire academic excellence and the tradition of personal and moral formation they offer.
The Benedictine Sisters live on the Monte Cassino campus in the St. Joseph Monastery. To learn more, please visit their Web site at www.stjosephmonastery.org.
