Community Wares


A Brothers making jamJams/Chutneys/Marmalade

The Brothers grow fruit and vegetables on the property. That which is surplus to their own needs is made into jams, chutneys, etc for sale to supplement their income. Generous friends also sometimes supply fruit to be used for this purpose.


The bee hives on the property (about 10 in number) supply honey which is bottled and sold for community funds.

Holding Crosses

Holding crosses are made by the Brothers and each is carved individually so no two are exactly alike.

Each cross is blessed.

Blank Greeting Cards

Six (6) varieties of cards are available. Two (2) feature buildings on the Brothers' property (Goat Dairy and Stone Hermitage). These are reproductions of original paintings by Elizabeth Irby Laurillard. One card features the creek which runs through the property (Sister Water) and is from an original photo takes by the Brothers. The card depicting the Carceri Hermitages established by St Francis is also from an original picture taken by the Little Brothers of Francis.

The card depicting the Icon of the Visitation was painted by Sr Marie-Paul, OSB, a nun living in a Benedictine Monastery on the Mount of Olives in the Holy Land.
