The Benedictine Sisters of Boerne are monastic women committed to community and a life of work and prayer, located in the heart of Boerne, TX. Their Benedictine Spirituality is built upon timeless traditions and Gospel values that include: Peace, Community, Listening, Hospitality, Prayer, Balance, and Stewardship. They are called to seek God in community and to respond in ministry through sharing their spirituality and addressing the needs of the people they serve, especially the poor. The Sisters extend their ministries beyond the monastery at The Omega Retreat Center, The Health and Wholeness Center, Sisters’ Attic Thrift Store, Corporate Responsibility Program, and Caridid de Corazón.

The Benedictine Sisters of Boerne, TX established a sponsored ministry on the Texas/Mexico border in 2000.
