new welcome to the Monastery
The Historical Museum at St. Gertrude now boasts a new Welcome Center. It is a first stop for all guests of the Monastery of St. Gertrude. Here, upon arrival, guests may learn about the history of the Monastery and Camas Prairie, get a list of Mass and prayer times, take a tour, and obtain a map to walking areas of the hillside. They may also explore the Gift Shop, which has been moved from the main building to the Welcome Center and will have greatly expanded hours.
"Since our life is so centered around hospitality, I am so pleased that visitors now coming to St. Gertrude's will have a designated place of welcome," says Prioress Sister Clarissa Goeckner. This transformation is an expression of the Benedictine community's core value of "healing hospitality" and readies the community for a future of welcoming more and more guests.
The Welcome Center hours are: Tuesday through Saturday, 9:30 - 4:30. New Summer Sunday Hours (July 1 till Labor Day) 1:00 p.m - 3:00 p.m. For more information, visit www.HistoricalMuseumatStGertrude.org or call 208-962-2050
