Sacred Heart Monastery

Life on the Prairie

 

Located in the rolling hills of western North Dakota, Sacred Heart Monastery is a rural community of Catholic Benedictine women who strive to personify the values of monastic life.

 

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our history and the tempo of our daily lives.

 

The natural

rhythm

of the day

begins

with a

brilliant

sunrise…

 

and ends

with the last

rays of light

filtering

through

the prairie

mists.

The

Promise of

the Prairie

reflects God’s

sustaining

presence

in our lives,

 

even in times

of uncertainty

and doubt.

Monastic life at

Sacred Heart

Monastery

revolves

around the

Liturgy of the Hours.

 

Our community

is devoted

to prayer

and good works.

Every member

contributes

something to

the greater

whole,

 

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.
