We are the Sisters of St. Benedict

of Ferdinand, Indiana…

 …a group of women who seek and share God by living together in a community based on prayer and service. In our monastery, we encourage each individual to use her strengths and talents to spread God’s love.

Come visit our community and learn more about our sisters who have dedicated their lives to prayer, community and work. We were founded in 1867 and follow a guide called the Rule of Benedict. As Benedictines, we respond to the needs of the Church and the world. We invite you to come and pray with us, visit our sacred spaces and learn more about our Benedictine life.

High School Retreat

ALL high school-aged women are invited by the Sisters of St. Benedict for a two-night monastic experience where, with a little help from Moana, Maui, and her friends, we will dive deep into the waters of where our hearts are calling us.

And the best part? EVERYTHING IS FREE! Free room! free food! free fun!

Leave everything behind and immerse yourself in this truly unique experience where you can connect (or reconnect) with Christ and open yourself up to everything God wants for you and your life.

The event takes place on the peaceful grounds of the Monastery of Immaculate Conception located in Ferdinand, Indiana. It will begin at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, March 15th and will conclude at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 17th.

There is no fee for attending but registration is required.
