The Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration's altar bread department was recently featured in an article written by Brian Lowney of the "Rhode Island Catholic."

His feature, “Midwest Drought to Impact Altar Bread Prices,” was shared with the Catholic News Agency. (Click here to read the article.)

Lowney interviewed Benedictine Sister Rita Clair Dohn, OSB, manager of the Sisters' altar bread department, to get her thoughts on how the area’s drought could affect wheat prices with regards to the congregation's altar bread production.

"We are grateful to Mr. Lowney for including us in his story and for sharing it with the Catholic News Agency, allowing other secular and mainstream media the opportunity to share this story with their readers across the country and around the world," Director of Communications Kelley Baldwin said. "As always, we keep everyone in prayer. We have been producing altar breads for over a century. Times change. Hard times come and go. Faith is everlasting, as is our confidence in the Lord’s guidance. We’ll continue making the bread that becomes the Body of Christ, and do it with prayer and a smile."
