Our Community

We the Benedictines of St. Scholastika's Abbey in Burg Dinklage are a community of women who try to live our lives in the church and the world according to the teachings of Jesus Christ. The Rule of St. Benedict (6th century) serves as our guide as we attempt to live according to the Gospel here and now. Our life in and as a community is supported by the common celebration of the liturgy, work and periods of silence and communal interaction.
