Olivetan Benedictine Sisters (O.S.B.) [Code: 447]

As a monastic community, the Olivetan Benedictines of Jonesboro, AR, love the Church and seek to serve her in fidelity to the Church's Magisterium. Our mission is the same today as it was in 1887 when we first came to Arkansas: serving those in need. “Ora et Labora” (Pray and Work) is the motto of the Benedictine Order, so prayer comes first in the life of our Sisters. Our life of prayer finds its highest expression in the Mass, Eucharistic adoration, and in the daily recitation of the Liturgy of the Hours. In our work, we serve the needs of the people in many different capacities, such as teaching, pastoral care in our hospital, and parish work. We witness to our consecration by wearing a distinctive habit, and look to the Virgin Mary as our model and mother, wearing white in her honor. Contact us for more information.
