Support the Monastery

book & gift shop


We are 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 more books on spirituality and local history, hand-crafted items, and much more.


We are a Benedictine community which welcomes people of all faiths, richly connected through prayer. Our ministries, our 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.

While we are a canonical community of papal jurisdiction, living in the Diocese of Boise, we do not receive any financial support from the diocese or Church. We are a non-profit, 501c3 organization supported by sisters’ ministries both at home and on mission — and your donations. Your gifts will enable us to fulfill our mission, sustain our dynamic ministries, care for sisters, and preserve and steward our buildings and grounds.
