A Life of Prayer and Service
ON THE PRAIRIE

Sacred Heart Monastery

The Benedictine Sisters of Sacred Heart Monastery make their home on the prairie of western North Dakota. Our monastic life of prayer and work follows the natural rhythm of the prairie, with times for working and resting, growing and harvesting, living and dying. The "promise of the prairie" reflects God's sustaining power in our lives, even in times of uncertainty and doubt. Through the cycles of nature, the prairie often appears weakened from drought, heat, ice, and snow. But new life always emerges again, as the prairie turns a lush, verdant green, with wild flowers blooming more profusely than ever.

Since the arrival of our Sisters in North Dakota in 1910, God has always guided us in our prayer and ministries. We invite you to get acquainted with us by exploring our website with the spirit of our pioneering foremothers.

We also welcome you to visit our monastery, seek God with us, join us for prayer, assist us in our ministries, or simply relax amid the beauty that surrounds us.
