Mission and Vision

Mission Statement

The Norfolk Priory of Missionary Benedictine Sisters is part of an international community of monastic women who participate in the missionary service of the Church by seeking God through community, prayer, and ministry.

Vision Statement

As Missionary Benedictine Sisters with our particular charism of prayer, community cultural, and ethnic diversity, and our commitment to respect persons and creation, we believe our call at this time is to:

  • Deepen and share our Benedictine spirituality  
  • Respond to the critical needs of society with emphasis on the poor, the marginalized, and the oppressed.
