Annunciation Monastery

Annunciation Monastery is a community of 45 Benedictine women in Bismarck, North Dakota. Located on a hill in the peaceful prairies of Bismarck, the Sisters are women who claim their humanity, who are redeemed by Christ and are empowered by the Spirit, and who strive with others to respond to the challenges of the times to further the mission of Jesus through prayer, lectio, and service. The Sisters extend their ministries beyond the monastery at CHI St. Alexius Health, the University of Mary, and Ministry on the Margins.
