Sister Michaela Hedican Elected Prioress

On Sunday afternoon, the Sisters completed a process they began in November with the election in the chapel of Sister Michaela Hedican as the 16th prioress of the Sisters of the Order of Saint Benedict.

Sister Michaela served as prioress of Saint Bede Monastery from 2008-2010, when the Sisters of that community transferred membership to Saint Benedict's Monastery. She said, "I am humbled and grateful for the trust the Sisters have put in me and for their support and love."

The Sisters are delighted with the way the Spirit moved, especially over the three days of the Chapter meeting, and called forth this wonderful woman as leader of the community for the next six years.
