A gift in honor or in memory of a family member or friend is a special way to show your support for the mission and values of Benet Hill Monastery.
A tribute gift honors a special time in someone’s life – a birthday, anniversary, an honor or other memorable event.
A memorial gift, given in honor of a deceased loved one or friend, remembers the deceased person.
Since 1965 the development program (recently renamed Mission Advancement) has invited others to share in the mission of Benet Hill Monastery. Through the sharing of time, talent, and treasure, donors partner with the sisters to “show in deeds rather than words all that is good and holy”– St. Benedict. It is through this partnership that the Sisters of Benet Hill Monastery can continue to offer life-giving service for the world of the 21st century.
The Benet Hill community does not receive financial support from the Catholic Church for the care of the retired sisters, their ministries, or their ongoing operating expenses. And although the sisters do receive social security, the benefit amount is one-third of what the average American receives.
Financial resources supplement the revenue from social security and earnings of active sisters to help provide for present and future retired sisters as well as enable the community to continue helping others through ministries of spiritual formation and service.
The giving circle is a special group of donors who support the sisters by committing to a monthly gift of a specific amount. This regular, ongoing support allows us to plan ahead for our ministries, as well as to continue the care of our aging sisters. To view the brochure and sign-up form, click here.
