***PLEASE NOTE: This information was updated on March 16, 2020. Please click HERE for the latest news regarding our public Masses.***

We join with all of you in facing these unprecedented times, and our congregational leadership has recommended the following for our monastery:

Until at least March 30, our Guest Houses will be closed; no tours of our chapels will be allowed; and the convent gift shop will be closed. 

Our Adoration Chapel is still open for Liturgy of the Hours. Public Masses are still taking place with these restrictions: guests are to keep some distance between themselves and others; there will be no physical contact for the Sign of Peace; and we request anyone who normally receives communion on the tongue to receive in the hand or wait until the end of the communion line to receive. If Bishop Johnston closes public Masses in the diocese, our chapel will be closed for Mass also.

If you have any questions, please call (660) 944-2221. We continue to hold each of you in prayer.
