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.

Thank you for your kindness. It is very much appreciated! God bless you! May Our Mother of Perpetual Help protect you and your family. You may email the Monastery -

Web site is current as of September 9, 2022.

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.
