Benedictine Manor


May 18, 2018


Today, the Benedictine Sisters announced important news regarding the closure of Benedictine Manor.  A copy of the News Release may be read by clicking here or by clicking on the image of the Release at right.


Although the news is about closure, the Manor will continue to offer a warm, welcoming home for the community of residents until the last resident relocates.  During these months of transition, the Sisters and staff of Benedictine Manor will remain fully engaged in providing residents with the safe, peaceful environment and the caring community life to which they are accustomed.


Please pray for the Manor residents, staff, and Sisters during this period of transition and change.

Benedictine Manor

At the crest of a wooded hillside on the grounds of Sacred Heart Monastery lies Benedictine Manor, a retirement residence for independent senior adults.  This active, vibrant community was founded in 1983 as a corporate ministry of the Benedictine Sisters of Cullman, Alabama. The founding Sisters sought to meet the needs of retired adults who desired the independence and comforts of their own home, yet freedom from the burdens of home-ownership. For over 30 years, men and women of many different backgrounds and faiths have found a comfortable home and a friendly, caring community at the Manor.
