Benedictine Emerald Society

Sister Jeannette Murray led the Benedictine School with enthusiasm, love and determination for almost 40 years. Her passion and dedication made a significant impact on the lives of students and adults on a daily basis, and her "won't take no for an answer" attitude helped the school become the nationally accredited state-of-the-art education center that continues to inspire today.

For those who knew Sister Jeannette, it comes as no surprise that the name of Benedictine's legacy giving society pays tribute to her beloved Ireland. We hope you will consider supporting the future needs of the children and adults in our care by becoming a member of the Emerald Legacy Society.

Individuals honored here have included The Benedictine Foundation in their estate plans

We are forever grateful for your generosity in securing the future of our children and adults with developmental disabilities.
