Support St. Gertrude’s Creates

The Sisters of St. Gertrude’s are turning COVID-19 lemons into creative lemonade through their new St. Gertrude’s Creates Kickstarter campaign.
In normal times, the Monastery of St. Gertrude welcomes people for retreats, services, concerts, lectures, museum and Inn visits, and walks up their beautiful forested hill. The COVID-19 pandemic has put a stop to this, so the sisters are planning other ways to share their hospitality through creative expression.
Support their Kickstarter campaign to help them fill the Monastery’s income gap and the sisters will share a poem, a song, an artwork or crafted creation, an art class, and even a future visit to our monastery home.
