Benedictine Legacy Event Brings Leaders Together on May 15

The Benedictine Sisters of Annunciation Monastery, Bismarck, hosted the Fifth Annual Sponsorship Formation event on May 15 at the Bismarck Radisson Hotel. Over 100 employees of the sisters’ sponsored ministries – the University of Mary, St. Alexius Medical Center and Garrison Memorial Hospital, discussed ways to deepen and share the Benedictine legacy.

“Our effort is to touch as many employees in our sponsored institutions as we can with various opportunities for education and sharing on the call to serve as Jesus served,” explains Sister Thomas Welder, chair of Annunciation Monastery’s Sponsorship Council.

Leaders in healthcare and higher education enjoyed this year’s keynote speaker, Abbot John Klassen, OSB, of Saint John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minn. Klassen presented on the theme “Benedictine Legacy.”

Sister Nancy Miller, prioress of Annunciation Monastery, says, “When we connect our values to our daily service and the way we care for others, that’s Gospel. What an empowering message.”
