I’m sure you are enjoying the longer afternoons of sunlight just as we are! After Lauds one can hear the sound of the birds chirping. Here in New Jersey the trees are beginning to bud and flowers are coming up from the ground. We know this will happen every year but every year it seems nothing short of a miracle!
This year we are offering a new collection of spring scents with our SPRING TRIO. This is a lovely box of three 4 ounce bars of soap embossed with a floral motif. The bars come nestled in green fill and packaged in a clear box with a gold bow.
The scents of the 3 bars are: sweet honeysuckle goat’s milk soap, lavish lilac shea soap and delicate lily of the valley shea soap.
We hope you have seen our new Facial Care Combo Bag. It’s a wonderful collection of our new Facial Cream (it’s becoming a best seller), facial soap and a trio of our lip balm. All come packaged in a mini organza shopping bag in either green or ivory.
We have some new books in our shop, as well! Our latest offering is a new biography on St. Francis of Assisi by a Dominican–Fr. Augustine Thompson, OP. Fr. Thompson has been a friend of the monastery for many years and we are happy to see the years of research come to fruition.
The sisters have been reading this book and while some found it a big boring, other sisters said reading the book gave them an increased understanding and appreciation for this great saint!
