Change to Virtual Event

The Sisters of St. Benedict of St. Paul’s Monastery look forward to our 13th annual Christmas at the Monastery fundraiser event, which is scheduled for December 12, 2020. Christmas at the Monastery is our largest community event, and we are so grateful for your support over the years.

Because of the coronavirus, this event will not be what it was in the past. We are brainstorming creative ways to make it possible for you to connect with the Sisters. Your donations will make for a successful event for the Sisters. This year, we need your help more than ever as we reinvent Christmas at the Monastery. Along with our fantastic silent auction, we’ll have an online marketplace and the Sisters will be broadcast live during an interactive virtual event. Highlights include:

Online Marketplace – December 7-13

Silent Auction – December 12, 2:00-4:30 p.m.

Virtual Social Hour with the Sisters – December 12, 3:00-4:00 p.m.
