Our community supports itself directly from the income of the Abbey’s businesses. A team of four sisters and two employees works hard in our bookshop, doing their best to offer our visitors all that a sophisticated customer with intellectual and spiritual interests might be looking for these days: religious books, selected literature, guiding and counselling books, cards, craft items, ceramics, icons and calendars. A wide range of goods invites the visitor to linger and browse, and there is opportunity for personal contact and conversation. Ordering goods from home is also possible – by telephone, fax, e-mail or via the Internet.
