Mission Benedict was founded by the Benedictine Sisters and lifelong volunteer Verna Scharbach in 1988. Since then, it has become a lifeline for community members needing food, clothing, or emergency financial assistance. Mission Benedict Program Coordinator Lei Schaecher shares the healing power of community for our virtual fundraising celebration: A Week of Support for Shelter Ministries, May 2-8, 2021, during the Year of St. Joseph.
