All Good Things

    The Sisters' gift shop, All Good Things, is great for browsing - and buying! Unique to the shop are the "holy aromas" - soaps and lotions made in-house by the Sisters, handmade jewelry and a variety of greeting cards. Art works both from Sr. Jane Mary's studio and beautiful one-of-a-kind tie-dyed scarves by Sr. Sharon Havelak are also available. Jana Whitmore, the Shop Manager, offers periodic art and craft sessions. The store is committed to offering Fair Trade items and all proceeds go to support the mission of the Sisters of St. Francis.
