There are many values embedded in the Rule of Benedict. Of these, The College of St. Scholastica has chosen to focus on five: Community, Hospitality, Respect, Stewardship, and Love of Learning. Watch a video of Sisters sharing what the values mean to them.
Love of Learning
The Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery, Duluth, Minnesota welcome you! We are monastic women who seek God in community through a life of prayer and work. Living in accordance with the Gospel and the Rule of St. Benedict, we respond to the needs of the Church and the world through our ministries.
What are our ministries?

Where did we come from?
Our immediate beginnings stem from St. Walburg’s Abbey in Eichstätt, Bavaria in 1852. View a brief history of the Duluth Benedictines, including vintage photos. However, the history of the Benedictines stretches further back - over 1500 years - to the year 480! For a historical overview of the Benedictine Order, click here.
