Dear Friends, Family Members, Employees, Alumnae, Oblates, and Volunteers of St. Scholastica Monastery:

We are happy to report that the Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery are all COVID free following our recent testing and strict quarantine.

It has been four months since St. Scholastica began to shelter in place to avoid the spread of COVID-19 in the community, and we are grateful that no sisters have been infected.

With this happy news, we will continue our practice safety and take continued precautions to prevent the virus's spread.

Every sister and all of our on-site employees have been tested. If anyone has been in contact with the community and holds concern, we encourage you to please get tested.

We thank you for your prayers for our employees and us during this challenging time!

The monastery will continue to be CLOSED to the public for the foreseeable future, at least through September 1st, including Hesychia House of Prayer, in New Blaine.

Thank you very much for your prayers and support of us here at St. Scholastica Monastery.

Oh my goodness
am I weary!
O dear Jesus
you were with me
One hour and a half
Find your File menu
click on Save as
Where is it?
I can't find it.
Where is this?
Where is that?
Over and over
There are so many
And my brain is weary
YET ...
I am learning so much
That label --
What was it?
Oh! now I remember!
It read "Dinosaur"
You belong to the Dinosaur Age
You are
Computer illiterate!
Five classes
What's happening?
I am peeling off
some of that label
Perhaps I have removed
about 10%
