Buy Benedictine World-Wide. A Benedictine oblate blog

Consider giving a gift from a Benedictine monastery this Christmas.

Yes, I know it is a problem to get in your car or board your plane to find Benedictine monasteries with gift shops. What will you do, what will you do?

Not to worry. Here are six Benedictine monasteries on three continents with online gift shops, three from sisters and three from monks. How about that?

Sisters' Online Shops

Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, Clyde, Missouri

2. The Benedictine Sisters of the Monastery of St. Gertrude, Cottonwood, Idaho.

3. Jamberoo Abbey, Australia

Monks' Online Shops

St. Leo Abbey Pilgrim Gift Shop, St. Leo, Florida

2. St. Benedict Monastery in Oxford, Michigan

3. Ampleforth Abbey, United Kingdom

You will find special and unique gifts for your family and friends. Many gifts have that distinctive Benedictine monastic style.

You will also be supporting the ancient monastic traditions of monks and sisters selling products to help maintain their monastic way of life — think of it as your double gift.

  2. Rose, thank you. Your blogs were good to read this morning. Your pictures are filled with God's beauty.

  3. A reader of this blog was kind and e-mailed me another monastery with an online shop.
