God can be found in even ordinary things….like soap. But Abbey Scented Soaps are more than just suds; they are infused with Holy Water by Sister Cathleen Marie, who also says a prayer for the person who will be using the soap. Sister Cathleen Marie, called the “Soap Sister,” is a member of the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration, the monastic community near Clyde, Missouri—just a couple miles from The Printery House. The Soap Sister handcrafts Abbey Scented Soaps in 44 exclusive scents for The Printery House. These soaps are made with natural ingredients that nourish the skin—shea and cocoa butters, olive, coconut, palm, and almond oils.
Pictured here is Sister Cathleen Marie with a Wanda, a volunteer; in the next picture Sr. Cathleen is preparing her “Scrub Stuff, “ a wonderful exfoliant. Born in California, Sister Cathleen entered the Benedictine Sisters in 1967. The Soap Sister feels that she is glorifying God through the work of her hands. And when you use her handcrafted soap, you are remembered in prayer…a heavenly combination of bubbles and blessings.
