From Convent to Monastery

Many years of reflection on their monastic heritage and the Benedicine charism lead the Sisters to officially change the title of the monastery to Sacred Heart Monastery from Sacred Heart Convent.

The use of the term “monastery” more accurately reflected the monastic character of the community than the more general term “convent.” This change, though simple on the surface, evidenced the clear acknowledgement by the Sisters of their monastic identity as Benedictines.
