Byzantine Benedictine Sisters

The sisters' primary ministry is to one another in community life as they pray, study, work, and share meals and leisure, supporting and challenging one another to further growth.

Morning, noon, and evening, the sisters gather in community to pray for the needs of all God's people, particularly those who have requested prayer. The sisters extend their hospitality to those in need of Christ's healing presence by offering an environment of peace, beauty, and prayer.

The sisters minister to the needs of God's people through directing the Office of Religious Education for the Archeparchy of Pittsburgh. They also teach Eastern Christian Formation classes for SS. Peter and Paul Byzantine Catholic Church (Eastern Rite) in Warren, Ohio. The sisters offer pastoral help, visit the sick, perform parish secretarial work, and do monastery administrative work. They give special attention to promoting knowledge and appreciation of the spiritual riches of the Eastern Church, regularly offering enriching spirituality days.
