Visit to Bristow
All students will have the opportunity to visit Saint Benedict Monastery in Bristow, Virginia, home of our founders, the Benedictine Sisters of Virginia. In a very special day planned by the sisters, students will have the opportunity to explore the grounds and pray with the sisters. They enjoy meeting the sisters who attended, taught, or even led Saint Gertrude all while discovering the beauty of the many traditions that we still continue today. During their visit, students also experience a small glimpse into the life of our Benedictine Sisters participating in prayer, service, and following a similar schedule to their daily life.
