Support Our Sisters

Simplicity – Frugality – Green Energy

Members of the Cistercian order of the Strict Observance, the sisters of Mount Saint Mary’s Abbey pledge a life of simplicity and frugality, of prayer in union with God.  As part of their Cistercian tradition, they are required to live by the work of their hands.  They run Trappistine Quality Candy to fulfill this requirement for the sole purpose of supporting their life of prayer, and of sharing with the poor.

The constitution of the order also calls the sisters to act in conservation of the environment and to manage natural resources prudently.

The sisters live simply in peace and shared joy, and charity making their chocolates with love and prayers for the world.
