Monastery Heritage Sale

Our Sisters have accumulated from donors and some from purchasing over the past 100+ years a collection of very beautiful furniture, rugs, and decorative items. They are now at the stage where they would like to divest these treasures in a manner that would be respectable to the items and those who donated them. All proceeds will be used to support their mission and works of ministry.

They will be having a sale of these items on the third floor of the Monastery on Monday, August 29 from 11:30 am to 4:30 pm and Tuesday, August 30 from 9 am to 4 pm. Watch for signs to direct you. Payment can be made by cash, check, or credit card.
