Racism, violence, and inequality go against all that we stand for as one human family and who we are as Benedictines. Please read this statement from our Prioress, Sister Beverly Raway and our Joint Ministries.

What People Are Saying

I give thanks for this sacred space and the gift of hospitality that all the Sisters have.

- Suzanne

Thank you for making this day, evening and morning possible for me for private prayer, reflection and meditation at your monastery and Center.  I'm deeply and prayerfully grateful for your kindness.

- Tom

My spiritual experiences at the McCabe Renewal Center are a significant part of my formation.  Thank you for the support, love and learning.

- Helen

If you are looking for a place of quiet, of prayer, of wonderful waterfalls and bounteous wildflowers, of more wonderful women - this is the place for your sabbatical.  There are also trails in the woods, bountiful flowers here on the grounds, and a view of Lake Superior.  I've been here six weeks; it's going to be sad to leave here soon.
