Tutzing Priory Overview

Our community was started in 1885 in Germany. It is as old as the Congregation of the Missionary Benedictine Sisters. This is where it all begun. 

From the beginning, Tutzing has been the training ground for the Missionaries who were sent to different parts of the world, either to found other communities or to join and strengthen existing communities. In these communities, like here in Tutzing, the Missionary Benedictine Sisters live, pray and work.

From many countries, young sisters have joined our congregation, making up 12 priories around the world. 

Here in Germany, Tutzing Priory includes five communities:

Besides these, there is the House of St. Benedict, which is home to the returning missionaries after their long years of service in foreign lands.
