We are...

a community of Benedictine Sisters in Mt. Angel, Oregon.  We are women who have responded to the call to live in community according to the Gospel and the Rule of St. Benedict.  Together we seek God in a balanced life of prayer and work, simplicity, hospitality, and service.


Our Gift Shop doors may be closed to the public, but that doesn't mean you have to go without any of our unique gifts or handmade items.  Give us a call today at (503) 845-2556 for information on what items we have in stock or to place your order.  Items can be picked up curbside outside of the monastery or we can mail them to you.  All you pay for is the cost of shipping.   Give us a call today!

Morning Praise

by Sister Judith Bloxham, OSB

Awake at daybreak… your heart washed clean.

Open your eyes as you arise, and gaze…

into the face of one who comes to greet you.

Search the lines of love…

at times, somewhat tense and tired,

but search them well with single-hearted clarity.

Do you not… begin to see…

deep down in these eyes that mirror your own,

begin to see… the Face of Christ,

shadowed reflection in so many faces

giving Praise at daybreak.
