Klassen to Speak on Benedictine Legacy


The Benedictine Sisters of Annunciation Monastery, Bismarck, will host the fifth annual sponsorship formation event on May 15 at the Bismarck Radisson Hotel.

More than 100 employees of the nuns’ sponsored ministries — the University of Mary, St. Alexius Medical Center and Garrison Memorial Hospital — will consider ways to deepen and share the Benedictine legacy.

“Our effort is to touch as many employees in our sponsored institutions as we can with various opportunities for education and sharing on the call to serve as Jesus served,” Sister Thomas Welder, chairwoman of Annunciation Monastery’s Sponsorship Council, said in a statement.

Leaders in health care and higher education will spend the day listening to this year’s keynote speaker, Abbot John Klassen, OSB, of Saint John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minn. Klassen will present on the theme “Benedictine Legacy.”
