by St. Alphonsus Liguori
Doctor of the Church
(Prayed: December 16 - 24)
This Novena was translated from the Italian of Saint Alphonsus Maria de Liguori and was first published in 1758. The Novena is intended primarily as a preparation for the FEAST OF OUR LORD’S NATIVITY, but it can be prayed with spiritual benefit at any other time of the year as a devotion in honor of the INFANT JESUS. There is a different meditation and prayer for each day of the Novena. Also included are prayers for New Year’s Eve - to end the old year and to begin the New Year. These are beautiful, traditional prayers you can recite together with your family. (28 pg booklet, Offering includes shipping with tracking info) Available on the Sacramentals page.

St. Andrew - ADVENT NOVENA CHAPLET - or, The Prayer To Obtain Favors - begins on NOVEMBER 30 - a beautiful prayer that is traditionally prayed 15 times each day from the Feast of St. Andrew, November 30 to Christmas Eve. It is a very meditative prayer which helps to increase our awareness of the real meaning of Christmas - and also helps us to spiritually prepare for the Feast of the Nativity of Our Lord on Christmas.
The Chaplet measures 5-1/4 inches long, with fifteen 8mm dark violet glass beads, and a Nativity of Jesus medal. Included is a full-color leaflet with the Prayer to Obtain Favors (Advent Novena Prayer) and an explanation of the Chaplet.
Imprimatur - FEBRUARY 6, 1897. Leaflet printed in the Monastery.
It is piously believed that whoever recites the Advent Novena prayer FIFTEEN times each day from the feast of St. Andrew (November 30th) until Christmas Eve will obtain what is asked.
Chaplet available on the Sacramentals page.

Dear Friend, Pray, hope, and don't worry! (Padre Pio)
Prayer changes all things. God is all powerful. Nothing is impossible with God or beyond His power to change. All visitors to our website, and their families, are being remembered in a special way each day in our on-going Novena to Our Mother of Perpetual Help for her loving protection - and her intercession for a speedy (and complete) end to the coronavirus - for those sick and suffering with the virus for a complete and speedy recovery, and for the safety and protection of all families, caregivers, and all medical and nursing professionals, and for all who are sick and suffering.

You may obtain sacred items for yourself and/or your family from this Monastery via the website. The Monastery is small - there is no gift shop. All sacred and devotional items are obtained via the website. All items are prepared in this Monastery, unless otherwise noted. There is no outside help or volunteers. All preparation work and all printing is done in the Monastery - and all requests are packaged and mailed from this Monastery - no "fulfillment center" is used. You may also send your intentions for the monthly Novenas - request candles - and request Holy Masses and Mass Guild enrollments via the website.

Semi-Cloistered Sisters - Our Life
Our voluntary withdrawal from the world frees us from worldly affairs so that we may lead a more intense life of prayer in silence and solitude within our monastery. Daily we pray and offer sacrifices for the sanctification of our own souls, for the sanctification of all priests and their labors, and for vocations to the Priesthood and religious life. We pray daily for the needs of Holy Mother Church, the intentions of our families, friends, and benefactors; for the conversion of sinners, the salvation of souls, and for the intercessory prayer requests which we receive daily.
Our Horarium - What Semi-Cloistered Sisters Do All Day
Our days are filled with prayer, Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament, work, and household chores. Because work is an extension of prayer, we labor in a peaceful and prayerful atmosphere within our monastery each day to help support ourselves through a small printing apostolate which includes a monthly novena devotional newsletter, Mass cards, Prayer Remembrance cards; and our small mail-order apostolate of religious gifts, cards, devotional badges, the Agnus Dei sacramental, and various religious books, pamphlets, and holy cards. We invite you to visit our Sacramentals Catalog page (please use the link at left) to see items currently available!

In imitation of Our Lady at Nazareth, each Sister shares in typical household duties and the upkeep of the convent, such as: cooking, washing dishes, house cleaning, laundry & ironing, yard work, painting, gardening, or whatever task may be asked of her in holy obedience.
The Holy Vows
We take the Vows of Poverty, Chastity, and Obedience. Although not cloistered in the strictest sense, our life is spent here in the monastery, and we rarely leave the property except when it is of absolute necessity or emergency. As semi-cloistered Sisters, we do not travel or go on vacations; however, we are permitted to receive family and close friends in our parlor at certain times of the year and on special occasions.
