We Benedictine Sisters of St. Walburg Monastery, faithful to our monastic profession, seek God in community, prayer and work.
We celebrate the presence of Jesus Christ and serve him in all God's people, the young and the old, the sick and the poor, the stranger and the guest.
| Oblate Stefanie Parker died on June 1, 2015.
suffered from severe rheumatoid arthritis for the past few
years. She was one of the first to participate in the Associate
Program (which later became the Oblate Program) from 1985
She said that being a Benedictine Oblate is a treasure, a privilege, and most special blessing to share in a relationship with the community. It gives me strength, happiness, and peace. I feel at home when I am with the Sisters of St. Walburg.
She asked that no public or private service be held. Instead, she suggests that friends have a Mass offered, do volunteer services, or make donations in her memory. The Mass on Tuesday, June 9th was offered in memory of Stefanie at St. Walburg Monastery. May she rest in peace!
