Benedictine Mission/Pilgrimage Trips
Through Campus Ministry, Mount Michael offers short trips during Spring Break to other Benedictine Houses near Mount Michael. Although most of these trips are simply day trips, there have been some that have been overnight and extend into the next day.
There are several other Benedictine houses in Nebraska alone— Christ the King — Mission House in Schuyler, Nebraska and Immaculata Monastery—Benedictine Sisters of Tutzing in Norfolk, Nebraska. Both of these communities are missionary communities and they have missions all over the world besides locally. Mount Michael’s own mother house is only a few hours away as well— near Maryville, Missouri — Immaculate Conception. And nearby are the Sisters of Perpetual Adoration — at Clyde, Missouri. North of us on the Missouri River are the Benedictine Sisters in Yankton, SD. — Sacred Heart Monastery.
Mount Michael is in a good location where all these visits may be day trips or at least short ones.
The purpose of these trips is to offer some mission work for our students but also to become more familiar with the wide range of mission and work that Benedictines do. It is also an opportunity for our students to pray and to experience Benedictine spirituality in a setting or vision outside of Mount Michael.
These trips are open to all students. And at times Mount Michael parents participate as well.
