All real life is encounter

– Is the motto that describes what is, since its opening, being lived in the MONASTERY IN THE HEART OF THE CITY.

Building on a tradition that is more than 600 years old, the rectory of the Wengen Church is now again a Sister’s house and a meeting place.

Franciscan Sisters of Reute: Sigrid Bucher, Dorothea Burth, Barbara Winter

Sr. Sigrid, Sr. Dorothea, Sr. Barbara (v.l.n.r.)

Prayer and Celebrations

The Eucharist and the evening prayer of the Church, Vespers, we pray and celebrate together with the congregation in the Wengen Church.

For Lauds we invite the people to the convent in the morning at 7:30.

Traditional prayers and songs are used as well as new and innovative forms of prayer. Holy Scripture is a daily companion on our spiritual journey – and the Sisters again and again extend the invitation to come in touch with the different texts of the Bible.
