On Tuesday the new Benedictine Gift Shop, located inside the St. Mary's Parish annex building, is opening its doors to the community.
"The store will continue to serve as an honor to our Benedictine Sisters while providing additional products that are produced by other Benedictine communities," explained Fr. Thomas More Sikora, O.S.B. of St. Mary's Parish.
The former Trifles and Treasures Benedictine Sisters' gift shop, situated inside the St. Joseph Monastery closed on June 1. Since then parish staff have been busy preparing the store by moving merchandise to the new location, setting up displays, sorting and pricing inventory, configuring the shop's payment system and more.
Its hours of operations are Tuesday - Friday 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. and closed Sunday and Monday. The annex building is situated on the corner of Church and Maurus streets.
