Sister Rose Budicky

I was born and raised in Carrolltown, Pennsylvania where I experienced Benedictine life. I was part of St. Benedict Church (staffed by Benedictine Monks of St. Vincent Archabbey); attended St. Benedict Catholic School and experienced the work and prayer of our Benedictine Sisters who lived in the first “Motherhouse” of our Community.

I had an older sister who belonged to our Community (Sister Magdalen) but she had entered religious life before I was born! I attended the local public high school and in my senior year started to work at our local town bank on Saturdays. After finishing high school I continued working at the bank fulltime for 6½ years before entering the Benedictine Sisters of Pittsburgh in 1951.

I taught grade school classes for two years before starting to teach Business Classes at Geibel High School and then at St. Benedict Academy. I also worked part-time in the Community Business Office. In 1973 I began taking care of the Community investment portfolio full time and continued in that work until 2001. I also served as treasurer for our Community and St. Benedict Academy for 12 years.  When this work was finished, I worked part-time in the Business Office.

In 2008, I fell and fractured my hip. Because of this, I retired from work in the business office. Now my life of Benedictine prayer is my ministry each and every day.
