”God is truth.  All who seek truth seek God, 

                 whether this is clear to them or not.”

                            Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross


Mission Statement 

The Edith Stein Guild of America is an incorporated lay Roman Catholic organization, formed in 1955, to spread knowledge of Edith Stein (St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross) and to advance harmony and understanding between Christians and Jews.  The Guild also spreads knowledge of St. Edith Stein so that more wide-spread understanding of her life, teachings, and writings will promote her being proclaimed a Doctor of the Church.  Addressing these goals, the Guild conducts activities during the year to help Catholics become more aware of their roots in Judaism, and conferences on the spiritual, theological, and philosophical writings of Edith Stein.
