OSB Chicago Archive Mission
The mission of the Benedictine Sisters of Chicago Archive is to appraise, collect, organize, describe, make available, and preserve information about our monastic community life for the purpose of knowing who we are, telling our story, teaching community history to new members, and assisting in ongoing monastic formation. We hope that use of these materials brings scholars to greater reverence for God at work in their hearts and in our world.
