Sister Lucille Snyder

When I was young my brother was impressed with the girls that went to St. Benedict Academy and wanted me to attend there for high school. So I did! In my heart I had a desire to become a religious sister. After experiencing the joy of the Sisters who taught me at the academy and having a chance to participate in the Divine Office and visit the chapel, I felt that God was calling me to Benedictine life.

After graduation I went to work but I still felt God’s call to the Benedictine Community. I entered on the feast of the Blessed Mother, September 15, 1956.

I ministered in education most of my religious life teaching elementary school in the Dioceses of Pittsburgh and Greensburg. Then I spent eight years doing home ministry, caring for my aging mother in Florida. While I was away, my Benedictine Community was never far from my heart.
When my mother became even more frail, I brought her back to Pittsburgh to live in the monastery where I could give her even greater care. Since my mother’s death, I have been involved in a variety of ministries here.

I love my Community. One of the blessings I treasure most is the opportunity to pray the Liturgy of the Hours together with my Sisters.
