All of the breads that we sell are breads we ourselves have made, from batter to finished product.



Not only does the production of altar breads support our monastic life, but it is also a ministry of service to the Church.



Conscious of what these wafers are to become, we take the greatest care in all stages of the process to ensure that only the best breads reach our customers.



Purity & ora labora et prayer work

For centuries, altar breads were made by communities of nuns; today we at        Valley of Our Lady Monastery

continue this custom.

In accord with the Benedictine tradition, we combine prayer and work so that the work of our hands is infused with the               fruits of our prayer.
