Sister Michaela Hedican, Prioress of St. Benedict’s Monastery in St. Joseph, MN and former President of the Federation of St. Benedict, was honored by Our Sunday Visitor. She was named one of the outstanding Catholics of the Year 2016 for her response, along with St. Cloud Bishop Donald Kettler, for rapid and compassionate response to the ISIS-related stabbing in Crossroads Mall and on-going work to strengthen Muslim-Christian relationships in the region.
Our Sunday Visitor chose a number of well- and less-known figures, honoring them for their special qualities of leadership.
Congratulations, Sister Michaela!
