We have been providing altar breads for over 110 years! Due to parishes closing because of COVID, we are no longer able to produce regular breads. We now offer sealed-edge breads in varying sizes that are manufactured by Cavanagh Altar Bread. We do continue, however, to produce the same quality low gluten bread (approved by the Vatican in 2004) at our Clyde, MO monastery. It is a great privilege to provide the hosts that will become the Body of Christ.
You can learn more about our community and our ministry of prayer at www.benedictinesisters.org
We Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration are a monastic community called to a ministry of prayer, with a tradition of unceasing adoration of Christ in the Eucharist. As Benedictines we live under a Rule and a prioress.
In this life of adoration Christ reveals himself in the charity, warmth and unity of a community formed by a common vision of faith. Nourished by the Eucharist, we recognize his presence in the breaking of the bread and the fellowship of our common table. – from the Constitution of the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration
We strive to witness to God’s presence in our world through our community life and by offering a welcoming space for silence, prayer and spiritual hospitality in a shared environment of monastic peace.
