As we close our campaign, we want to thank you for your generosity in supporting the sisters and mission at Holy Wisdom Monastery!



“Somehow the work we do touches a dream within others. It helps others find deeper meaning and it allows each of us to change into our better selves. This is why people give so generously because it is important and meaningful work.”

–Sister Mary David Walgenbach, OSB
