Who We Are

The Benedictine Sisters of Pittsburgh are monastic woman who live the Rule of St. Benedict.  Our days are a balance of prayer, community life, and ministry. 

Living in community under the leadership of an elected Prioress, we have received and share the Benedictine charism expressed in the Prologue of the Rule of St. Benedict…

"…What is more delightful than this voice of the Lord calling to us?  See how the Lord in his love shows us the way of life.  Clothed then with faith and the performance of good works, let us set out on this way, with the Gospel for our guide…."

Impelled by the Gospel and ”seeking Christ before all else,” we are involved in and committed to the communities in which we live and minister. We strive to use our gifts with and for others and to bear witness to Gospel values. 

That in all things God may be glorified...
