“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.

You are precious in my eyes, and honored, and I love you.”  (Isaiah  43)

Sister Deb Kuhl, OSB

I entered Benet Hill Monastery in 1974, after teaching with the Benedictines in Walsenburg, Colorado for two years as a VIDA volunteer. My early years as a Benedictine were spent doing Parish ministry throughout Colorado. In 1982 I became a fully professed member of this community. To put on the mind and heart of Jesus was my deepest desire.

.

My time with my Benedictine community was interrupted in 1990 as I found I needed to work through some issues of importance. My heart was never far from Benet Hill during those years away from community.

.

Returning to Benet Hill during their Jubilee in 2015 awakened my call to come back to community. In August 2016, I was able to return. On July 30th, 2017 I celebrated my first profession, again, as a Benedictine Sister and member of Benet Hill Monastery.

.

I am so grateful for my community who welcomed me home and my God who loves me no matter what.
