1997 – New Priory Store & Newsletter

January 18 – The Priory Store opened. We had inherited the contents of Aleda Hoffman’s store (mother of Sister Angela), and Sister Monika’s father, Leonard Ellis (pictured in the photo), remodeled one of our parlors off the lobby as its home. In the years ahead we took some of the items in our store on the road to rural parishes, playfully calling this ministry: “Have Rosaries, Will Travel.”


In Spring – The Priory Spirituality Center began a newsletter, At the Center.
