We’d like to introduce you to two people you may have spoken with if you place a Printery House order by phone…Helen and Amy. In addition to taking phone orders when things get really busy, Helen is our Assistant Director and her daughter, Amy, is our Marketing Director. They make a dynamic mother-daughter team here at The Printery House. In her spare time, Helen creates beautiful quilts . Amy really has no spare time since she’s the mother of two adorable yet active little boys and is expecting her third child in late July. In preparation for this happy event, Grandmother Helen has already created two quilts for the baby…one in pink; the other in blue. We’ll let you know in late July whether Amy will be using the pink or the blue quilt!
Has someone close to you had life turned upside down by a cancer diagnosis? Do you know someone grieving a loss? Perhaps a friend or family member has tried to quit an addiction or is still struggling. The Printery House is pleased to introduce Abbey Christian Care, a new line of Christian greeting cards and gifts that offer encouragement, comfort, and support for some of life’s most difficult challenges. The Abbey Christian Care cards in the “Courage Each Day” Collection were created specifically for those facing cancer. These uplifting messages and healing Scriptures offer hope and comfort for those undergoing cancer treatments.
In response to numerous requests to purchase the delicious granola served at Abbey Retreats, Father Guerric Letter, Kitchenmaster at Conception Abbey, together with The Printery House is pleased to announce Abbey Oven Granola.
Abbey Oven Granola is handmade from scratch the old-fashioned way by the Benedictine Monks of Conception Abbey. Abbey Oven Granola provides healthy, preservative-free food for the body and refreshment for the soul. Your purchase also supports the good works of the monastery.
Fr. Guerric Letter currently runs the kitchen here at the Abbey and is excited about getting Abbey Oven Granola off the ground as a new and exciting apostolate here at Conception.
Fr. Guerric Letter, the youngest of ten children, was raised on a dairy farm just outside of Green Bay, Wisconsin. After high school he came to Conception as a college freshman studying for the Diocese of Green Bay. He entered the monastery in 2002, made his first profession in 2003, and earned a B.A. in Philosophy from Conception Seminary College in 2005. In 2012, Fr. Guerric received a Master of Divinity from Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology. He completed the pastry program in the Culinary Studies Department at Johnson County Community College in 2014. If you attend a retreat at Conception Abbey, you might see Fr. Guerric supervising the kitchen and dining areas.
