Benedictine Sisters of Chicago Archives Mission

Our official records and personal papers are collected, maintained, and preserved by the Benedictine Sisters of Chicago Archives in order to provide our community and the wider public with research and educational resources. The Archives preserve the historical record of our monastic life of community, prayer, and service. We believe that using the Archives will strengthen peoples' faith and understanding of God's presence in the world.
