About Us

The Missionary Benedictine Sisters of Tutzing


Fr. Andreas Amrhein, our founder, wanted to renew the idea of mission in the Benedictine tradition and to establish a community that would proclaim the kingdom of God among those people who have not yet heard the gospel. In 1885, he founded our Congregation in southern Germany which came to be known as "The Missionary Benedictine Sisters of Tutzing."
