Tutzing - from this town at Lake Starnberg near
the Alps our congregation took its name. Here after the early beginnings
in Reichenbach and St. Ottilien the Sisters started, and from here the
congregation spread out to the other continents.
Today more than 1300 Sisters call themselves Missionary Benedictine Sisters
of Tutzing and find in Tutzing their "Mother House".
Three houses belong today to Tutzing Priory: the Priory House in Tutzing,
Bernried with its Seminar and Retreat House and Dresden, the beautiful
city, where the Catholics are a minority. Ettiswil, a small community
in Switzerland, was closed in June 2017. In all these places the Sisters
strive to reach out to the people and give witness of their faith and
hope in a society where Christian faith is no longer common ground.
