Join Us in Prayer


Prayer is a wonderful way to hear and draw close to God. By listening, we become the people God created us to be and can help our world grow towards peace. Prayer is also a central practice of Benedictine life and we welcome you to join with us in one of the following ways:

Prayer Requests


Let us join you in prayer for a special intention. Send us your prayer by clicking here and we will place your prayer intention anonymously in our chapel prayer book.


If you would like to request a mass to be said in honor of someone or a special occasion, please call our sub-prioress at 773.764.2413 x231. If asked, we can also send a special card in your name acknowledging a Memorial, Congratulatory, Sympathy, or Well-wish.


Due to growing concerns regarding Covid-19, we will also be suspending mass at St. Scholastica Monastery until further notice.

As always, we continue to keep you and your loved ones in our daily prayers.

Thank you,
Prioress Judith Murphy, OSB
Benedictine Sisters of Chicago
