Meet Sister Clare

“When there is a need to make serious decisions, the Prioress or Abbot is to call the community to counsel, however for minor business, the prioress or abbot shall take counsel with the elders only, as it is written: ‘Do everything with counsel and you will not be sorry afterward.’”

– The Rule of Benedict Chapter 3, Sirach 32:24

The council is invaluable to the functioning of the monastery. Our council is composed of five sisters-the Prioress, two sisters elected by the community and two sisters chosen by the Prioress.
