Sacred Heart Monastery of Cullman, Alabama Foundation was established on November 26, 2002. Its purpose is to serve and support the charitable, religious, and educational goals of the Benedictine Sisters of Cullman. In fulfillment of this purpose, the interest generated will be used to enhance the ministries of the Benedictine Sisters. These include the Benedictine Sisters Retreat Center, Benedictine Manor, and other internal ministries and works that support the Sisters’ lives of prayer and community living.


A Board of Directors administers the Foundation and ensures compliance with section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and any other applicable guidelines.


A gift to the Foundation offers a way to provide a sustained impact on the life and ministries of the Benedictine Sisters. We welcome the opportunity to speak with you about the Foundation, its goals, and how you may be of support.


For more information about how to support this important endeavor, please contact Sister Karen Ann Lortscher, OSB, Director of Development.

Checks for the Foundation should be made payable to Sacred Heart Monastery Foundation.
