St. John's Convent Bookroom

St. John's Convent Bookroom offers merchandise for sale at the Convent, but unfortunately cannot accept mail orders.

The Bookroom offers an interesting selection of books which include traditional classics along with many contemporary writers.

Finger Labyrinths

These appeal not only to our Associates and Oblates, clergy and others who frequently visit the Convent, but also to those experiencing a retreat, and to the many visitors who join the Sisters for chapel services and meals.
