The Perfect Fit Campaign

The purchase of Mount St. Benedict


Dear Friends in Christ,

I am pleased to invite you to participate in The Perfect Fit Campaign, an initiative that will fund the purchase of Mount Saint Benedict Campus for the Diocese of Crookston.

With your help, the sisters’ facility, with its modern accommodations, offices, and chapel, will become the Pastoral Center of the Diocese of Crookston and a retreat center employed to deepen the faith of Catholics in parishes and schools across northwest Minnesota. Importantly, the purchase will allow the sisters to continue to live their monastic communal life in a private section of the facility without an upsetting relocation.

The timing of this project is providential for the Diocese of Crookston, as well as the Benedictine Sisters, and will offer tremendous support to diocesan ministries. The campaign has my full support! It is simply the perfect fit for all parties concerned.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Rev. Richard E. Pates
