Welcome from the Visitation Sisters of Minneapolis!
We are present in inner city North Minneapolis to “Live Jesus” by being part of this multicultural community—to share prayer, hope and God’s blessings with the people in our neighborhood and to receive their blessedness. These, our friends, are drawn into a circle of faith that brings us all to a clearer vision of the face of God.
The Visitation Monastery of Minneapolis was founded in 1989. We conceived the Monastery in prayer and discernment as a desire to express Visitation contemplative life in a new way—a commitment to be one with those who live on the edge economically, and who are often marginalized by society.
Our urban monastery is a unique expression of monasticism and is part of the worldwide Order of the Visitation Sisters of Holy Mary, founded by St. Francis de Sales and St. Jane de Chantal in Annecy, France, in the year 1610.
May you find life, the steady, persistent pulse of the Holy Spirit, within you as you learn about us. It is that “heartbeat of the Spirit” that will help you live the motto of all Visitation Sisters: Live Jesus!
