Sacred Heart Monastery (Richardton)

The Benedictine Sisters of Sacred Heart Monastery make their home on the prairie of western North Dakota. Our monastic life of prayer and work follows the natural rhythm of the prairie, with times for working and resting, growing and harvesting, living and dying. The "promise of the prairie" reflects God's sustaining power in our lives, even in times of uncertainty and doubt. Through the cycles of nature, the prairie often appears weakened from drought, heat, ice, and snow. But new life always emerges again, as the prairie turns a lush, verdant green, with wild flowers blooming more profusely than ever.
