Last year, our annual Founder's Day Dinner moved online, to a virtual format because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year we had hoped to be in-person in beautiful Agatha Hall, but for the safety of the sisters and our family and friends, the Founder's Day Dinner will once again be a virtual celebration of our heritage and history.
We have fully embraced the many opportunities that pandemic has placed in front of us, in hopes of doing the most good with what we have been given. Our retreat ministry has grown virtually, and welcomed people near and far to participate in Shalom at the Monastery events. Our Gift Shop moved online and we have shipped the sisters handmade items all across the country. And through our YouTube channel, we continue to explore ways to bring the sisters out into the world virtually and safely.
We are only able to embrace these new opportunities for prayer, hospitality and service through the kindness and generosity of you, our family and friends. We prayerfully seek your support of our monastic community by participating in our Founder’s Day Virtual Celebration this year. Your gift will quickly go to work supporting our Benedictine community, especially our elderly and retired sisters.
Support Our Sisters
Thanks to a generous matching grant from the Larry & Jeanette Epping Family Foundation, every dollar raised during this campaign will be matched by the foundation, up to $50,000. Even better, if you opt to become a monthly sustaining donor of at least $10 per month, the foundation will double your gift for the first 12 months. There is no better time to support the Benedictine Sisters of Mt. Angel. Click the link below to make your gift today.
We have a very limited supply of the Divinely Original Monastery Mustard available to those who wish to support our Founder's Day Virtual Celebration. Each gift of $20 will receive one of only 300 12 oz. jars of mustard (maximum two per donation). All proceeds from the sale of the mustard will go directly towards supporting the Benedictine Sisters. Online orders open at 12:00 p.m. on September 1, 2021.

Thank You Sponsors!
Thank you to our wonderful "table" sponsors. Without their support, our event would not make as significant of an impact as it does. The Benedictine Sisters of Mt. Angel would like to thank...
