Ministries of the Benedictine Sisters of Erie

Monasteries of the Heart

Monasteries of the Heart is a new form of Benedictine life for our time. It is a monastery “without walls” — it unites individuals and groups by Benedictine values not necessarily geographic location and provides individual seekers a monastic website for spiritual sustenance and personal growth.
