The Benedictines of Jesus Crucified, Monastery of the Glorious Cross in Branford, Connecticut is a place in which a cloistered congregation of nuns share a communal life of prayer and self sacrifice.
Since its foundation, the community has welcomed women with disabilities. Despite substantial impairments and often chronic pain, the sisters spend their days in prayer and sacrifice. At this time, the sisters' disabilities are compounded by advancing years. The average age of our sisters is 73 years old.
