About Us

St. Scholastica Gift Shop is a ministry of St. Scholastica Monastery and has been in business since the early 1980s. Begun as a dream fulfilled by Sister Maurus Witt, OSB, the shop was originally housed in the Retreat Center. In September 2008, it moved to the first floor of the monastery with easy access from the front parking lot.  The gift shop is now located in the new monastery.
Through the years, many of our Sisters have donated their time and talent to this ministry. Currently, our staff includes Sisters Barbara Schroeder, Rose Maria Birkenfeld, Sister Alice O'Brien and Pat Bolling. For the past several years, Sister Vivian Luyet has been a mainstay of the shop, and we have enjoyed her wit and generous smile. Recently, we have been blessed by the generosity of Kathy Furstenberg, Annie Woody, and Gloria Tran who volunteer their time in the shop. Thank you, Kathy, Annie, and Gloria!
And thank you for your interest in our monastery and gift shop!  The online gift shop began in 2012 and has been a learning venture.  Thank you for your patience and understanding!
