The roots of the Benedictine Health System run deep in Minnesota. In 1892 Mother Scholastica and the Benedictine Sisters of St. Joseph, Minnesota, established a new Benedictine community in Duluth, Minnesota. From the one community in 1892, the Benedictine Health System has grown to over 40 communities in six states, carrying on the mission of the Benedictine Sisters of St. Scholastica.
