PHLIPPINES - BNEK Congregation, OSB

Project 3348 - General Chapter


In 1929, with the support of Bishop Santiago Sancho, Mother Edeltraud Danner, from the congregation of the Benedictine Missionary Sisters of Tutzing (Germany), opened a house in the Philippines with the particularity of bringing together two forms of life: contemplative nuns observing the enclosure and sisters carrying out charitable activities. In 1986, by decree of Rome, the active sisters became autonomous. The nuns became the Benedictine Nuns of the Eucharistic King (BNEK), whose mission is to help the poorest of the poor.

Eucharistic King (BNEK), whose congregation was approved in 2021 and comprises about 100 sisters. The congregation includes three abbeys: Vigan, Cogon, San Rafael. In 2020, at the request of the Bishop of the Diocese of Tagum, the Cogon community sent seven sisters to found a monastery there.


The young Congregation held its General Chapter in the monastery of San Rafael (Calapan) from 25 to 30 September 2022, with 16 participants. The sisters need financial help to cover the costs generated by the Chapter (travel, food, accommodation,...) which they do not have the means to pay.


Requested amount: € 5,000
