Community Life

Community - Overview

The fundamental characteristic of our way of life is seeking God in community. Our common life finds expression in praying and working together, in sharing our goods, both material and spiritual, and in mutual service, support and encouragement.

In the United States, our priory center is Immaculata Monastery & Spirituality Center in Norfolk, Nebraska.

For over 1500 years, the Rule of Benedict has served as a guide for ordinary men and women who want to live a full Gospel life. We were founded in Tutzing, Germany, in 1885, coming to the US to serve German immigrants in 1923. The missionary identity of our world-wide congregation is easily seen in the cultural diversity among us. Sisters from multiple different countries call the Norfolk Priory home.
