processionFor the past four years on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Americans across the country give back by making donations to support causes and organizations they believe are making a difference. It’s called “Giving Tuesday” and this year we hope that you’ll consider donating to the many ministries of the Monastery of St. Gertrude.

chapelmountainsWe are a canonical community of papal jurisdiction, living in the Diocese of Boise, welcoming people of all faiths through our core values of Healing Hospitality, Grateful Simplicity, and Creative Peacemaking. We are a self-sustaining non-profit, 501c3 organization supported by sisters’ ministries both at home and on mission — and your donations.

Our community includes you! Thousands of people visit our rural and forested monastery each year to renew at our retreat center, learn more about history at our museum, experience monastic life through the volunteer program, attend classical and sacred music concerts in our acoustically acclaimed chapel, join the sisters in Mass and prayer, and more. Everything we do is guided by the Rule of Benedict that instructs us to receive all as Christ. We believe that creating a home of hospitality, beauty, and healing that truly welcomes every person is needed in this world, now more than ever. We are consistently affirmed that our visitors are enriched with connection, tranquility, education, and deepening prayer.

Sisters. Oblates. Volunteers. Donors. Friends. Together, we are the Monastery of St. Gertrude.

We share a commitment to the steadfast way of Benedict and the heart-centered devotion of Gertrude. We each radiate God’s goodness in the places we are called to shine. Your financial support lifts us up and forward. Together, we are the Monastery.

Thank you for supporting St. Gertrude’s on #GivingTuesday!
