VIRGINIA DALE, COLORADO: The Benedictine nuns at the Abbey of St. Walburga tend to the herd of cattle that they raise on their ranch. In 1935 The nuns acquired what had been declared “un-farmable” land by the monks who owned it and turned it into a flourishing farm. They also set the ground work for a vibrant, joyful community of nuns who live faithful lives of service to the Church through prayer, praise, and conversion.
