The Purpose of our Residential Volunteer Program is to provide single women with the opportunity to enhance their lives by sharing in the life, prayer and ministries of our Monastery. Sacred Heart Monastery is situated on a bluff overlooking the Missouri River. The monastery grounds feature a wealth of flower gardens, a small vineyard, an apple orchard, the monastery vegetable garden, contemplative walking paths, and the monastery cemetery. A biking/walking path connects the Monastery to the Lewis and Clark Resort and Recreation Area that features hiking/biking paths, camping grounds, fishing, swimming, sandy beaches and more. Come and explore our incredible setting as a Resident Volunteer!
