The Promise

of the Prairie

reflects God’s



in our lives,


even in times

of uncertainty

and doubt.

Monastic life at

Sacred Heart



around the

Liturgy of the Hours.


Our community

is devoted

to prayer

and good works.

Every member


something to

the greater



and is valued

for the gifts that

God has given her

to share with others.

Our lives are

balanced between

prayer, work,

and recreation


leading us to

a greater knowledge

of ourselves,

each other,

and God.

As Benedictines

we treat

everyone as

we would

treat Christ,

as an honored

guest in our lives

from whom all

blessings flow.


Join us in

the wide open

spaces of the

northern plains,

and get to know us ~

and yourself ~

in ways you

perhaps have

never imagined.
