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!

Psalm 148 (Adapted for Earth Day)
by Sister Dorothy Jean Beyer, OSB
Praise the LORD!
Praise the LORD from the beautiful heavens!
Praise him from the cloudy Oregon skies!
Praise him, all his mighty angels and archangels!
Praise him, all saints of heaven!
Praise him, brilliant sun and super moon!
Praise him, all you twinkling stars and luminous planets!
Praise him, cloudy skies above and swirling winds!
Praise him, rain showers, rainbows and brilliant sunsets!
Let all creation give praise to the LORD,
Praise the LORD from Queen of Angels Monastery,
you giant Sequoias, Douglas firs, and Weeping Willows,
Yellow Daffodils, Narcissus, Oregon Grape, and tiny purple Violets,
Majestic Oaks, Incense Cedars, Apple and Pear trees that obey him,
Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson and Cascade Mountains,
Willamette Valley, Columbia River, and Abiqua Falls,
Deer, cougar and bears, and all wild life,
All small scurrying animals, cats, squirrels, and gold fish,
English Sparrows, Woodpeckers, Robins, squawking Crows,
Black Birds on the wing,
Rulers of the earth and all people, all nations, big and small,
All of us at Queen of Angels Monastery,
Oblates, donors, and retreatants, advisors, board of trustees, employees.
Let us all praise the name of the LORD. For his name is very great;
His glory showers the earth and heaven with abundance! Praise the LORD!
