Benedictine Sisters Featured in Environment News Coverage

Published Nov 2, 2021

The Benedictine Sisters of Mount St. Scholastica, Atchison, Kansas, were featured in a new series of reports on the Newsy channel titled, "Our New Reality: A Changing Planet," which aired November 1, 2021. Reporter Amber Strong, along with videographer Stephanie Sandoval, had visited Mount St. Scholastica earlier this year to do the interviews, getting a close-up look at the many beehives on the monastery grounds, the solar panels, and the honey processing room. Sister Elaine Fischer explained how beehives provide lessons in community living, with Sister Elizabeth Carrillo adding that being good stewards of the earth is part of the Benedictine charism.

The report also features the Benedictine monks of St. Benedict's Abbey, also in Atchison, and the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration in Clyde, Missouri, adding their take on blending faith with care for the environment.
