Monastic Suppliers:

Our monastic suppliers provide us with a wonderful selection of hand made and hand finished products, ranging from statues to soap and hand cream. By buying these you are not only getting excellent products made in a context of prayer, but also helping to support the varied apostolates of the different communities involved. Amongst the monastic communities we source products from are the following:
