Daffodils are blooming despite chilly weather, tiny leaves are emerging on trees and shrubs, and Transfiguration Monastery is blessed with new beginnings. On Shrove Tuesday, God sent us a new sister, a transfer candidate from another Benedictine Monastery. She was happy to find us, and we are delighted to welcome her.

Sister Donald, whose deep faith, fidelity and perseverance have kept Transfiguration Monastery alive and afloat against all odds, has asked to be relieved of her position as prioress. The Superior of St. Paul’s Monastery has asked Sr. Sheila to take on the role of prioress, beginning on May 1. Sr. Sheila is counting on your prayers!
