Support the Monastery
book & gift shop
The Center for Benedictine Life at the Monastery of St. Gertrude is delighted to offer many monastery-made gifts and books written by Sisters. We hope your journeys bring you to the Book & Gift Shop at the Welcome Center, where you’ll find many books on spirituality and local history, hand-crafted items, and much more.
The Center for Benedictine Life at the Monastery of St. Gertrude is a community which welcomes people of all faiths, richly connected through prayer. The ministries, community, and this sacred place – the Monastery of St. Gertrude – are made vibrant through the extensive network of people who generously support our mission with their time, talent and financial support.
As a canonical community of papal jurisdiction, located in the Diocese of Boise, the Center for Benedictine Life receives no financial support from the diocese or Church. This non-profit, 501c3 organization is supported by Sisters’ ministries — both at home and on mission — and generous donations. All gifts enable missions to be fulfilled, dynamic ministries to be sustained, care provided for sisters, buildings and grounds to be stewarded and preserved.
