A crowd of roughly 75 community members, parishioners, Benedictine Sisters and friends gathered early Saturday afternoon to honor the First Benedictine Women in North America and their 162 years of dedicated service.
The centerpiece of the ceremony was a monument that was recently donated and installed in the monastery’s cemetery by Oliver T. Korb & Sons, Inc. from DuBois.
