Just as in the Upper Room, Mary in her heart, with her prayerful presence, watched over the origins of the Church, so too now the Church’s journey is entrusted to the loving heart and praying hands of cloistered nuns.

Optional Gift Designation Information:
Saint Dominic (General Providence) Fund: Groceries. Heat. Electric. Water. These and other basic expenses are incurred monthly and add up, especially during the colder winter months (and dry summer months). The St. Dominic Fund covers these general expenditures that quickly add up for a growing monastic community.
Saint Joseph (Building and Grounds) Fund: Our large Gothic monastery, constructed in 1927, sits on about eleven acres, most of which is inside the enclosure. As the sisters rarely leave the monastery, our grounds and garden spaces are essential for our health and well-being. This fund helps cover the costs associated with the increasing maintenance and renovation needs, such as replacing bad pipes or old lighting, removing fallen trees, and other large expenditures.
Saint Martin de Porres Medical Fund: This fund is designated to cover increasing insurance and medical costs, particularly for our younger sisters.
Saint Louis Bertrand Formation Fund: Proper formation is essential to religious life. This fund is designated to cover the costs associated with initial and ongoing formation for our sisters, such as books and supplies, instructor stipends, and costs associated with participating in the Monastic Theological Studies program.
Blessed Jordan Society (Vocations Development): Pray. Invite. Encourage. This is the mission of the Blessed Jordan Society. Under the patronage of Our Blessed Mother and Blessed Jordan, members promise to be open to the Holy Spirit in helping to build a culture of vocations in their homes and local Church. Your support helps us cover costs associated with producing and distributing vocations materials.
