The monastery’s Altar Bread Department
is very happy and pleased to inform our readers that our monastery has finally
(somewhat) caught up with the 21st Century technology!
After many months of hard work in
begging for financial assistance (we are a mendicant Order,) procuring new
computers and printers, and configuring the system to meet our business needs,
we finally went ‘live’ with a new Sales/Accounting system called Quickbooks! The monastery is self-supporting.Since the beginning of our

of the people of God and through the loyal support of our faithful customers.

May our Holy Father St. Dominic and the
great St. Joseph, whom we chose as Patron for the Altar Bread department, bless
each of you for your kindness to the nuns.As our late Holy Father Blessed John Paul II said: The Church’s journey is entrusted to the loving hearts and praying
hands of cloistered nuns; so we thank our Dominican friars, benefactors and our customers for
sharing in our mission by their generous and loyal support.
