In the News...


We were mentioned (very briefly) in Milwaukee's Catholic Herald! The article was highlighting a new building project by the Priests of the Sacred Heart; however, our history with them was mentioned briefly.

"A portion of Villa Maria originally housed the Benedictine Sisters from Yankton, S.D., who provided domestic services for the priests and brothers at Sacred Heart Monastery."
Mahoney, K. (2010, February 11). Sacred heart at monastery lake takes shape. Catholic Herald, pp. 7.

It took me a little bit to figure out how we would have known the Priests of the Sacred Heart, then I remembered! The priests and brothers from Hales Corner were also at Chamberlain! Ah-Ha! The Franciscan Sisters I live with were the ones who discovered the mention in the article and were also quite curious as to how this small band of Benedictines ended up in the midst of this Franciscan stronghold. It is a bit amazing that we would have come back to their provincial house to work with them when there were already so many sisterly folk here. Hmm...
