An outpouring of love, gratitude and respect for the Benedictine Sisters of Elk County was evident on Sunday during a special community celebration honoring those who have served at St. Joseph Monastery in St. Marys, the oldest Benedictine monastery in the U.S. which is slated to close after 162 years of service.
A large crowd gathered at Queen of the World Church for a vespers service, program and social. The guests of honor included the remaining 17 sisters serving at the monastery, their family and friends along with sisters visiting from surrounding monasteries.
