From Monastery Immaculate
Conception, Ferdinand, Indiana

Made by Benedictine sisters in the monastery's bakery using simple ingredients: flour, brown sugar, eggs, salt, butter, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and almonds. The recipe for these cookies came from 12th century Benedictine polymath Hildegard von Bingen, who recommended them for slowing the aging process, creating a cheerful countenance, lightening a heavy heart, and releasing intelligence. They're delicious, too!

Monastery Immaculate Conception: Ferdinand, Indiana

The Ferdinand Benedictines are one of the largest Benedictine communities of women in the United States. The religious community numbers 173 women, about 115 of whom currently live in Ferdinand at Monastery Immaculate Conception.

The sisters serve in the areas of education, parish work, health care, counseling, retreat and spirituality work, social services, and mission work. The Sisters of St. Benedict of Ferdinand were founded in 1867 by four young Benedictine sisters who came from Covington, Kentucky, to teach Ferdinand's German settlers.

In the past 140 years, over 1,000 women have entered the Ferdinand Benedictine community. Their faith, spirit, and energy have led to the establishment of six independent monasteries—in Arkansas, North Dakota, California, Louisiana, Indiana, and Kentucky—and missions in Peru and Guatemala.
