Holy Week: Easter Cards Share Spiritual Truths Through Art

IamDo you know where your Easter cards came from, or if they have a story? Taking the time to send a message of hope and faith with a religious greeting card is a special act. You can make it even more meaningful this year by sending a unique card that has a story all its own.

One example are the cards made on-site at The Printery House, a printing ministry of the Benedictine monks of Conception Abbey. Nestled among the hills and trees of northern Missouri, Conception Abbey is home to just under 50 monks devoted to prayer and ministry. The Abbey has been in existence since 1881 and has been involved with printing since the 1930s.

At The Printery House, religious greeting cards are designed by individual artists, some of whom are the monks themselves. The artwork for each card is chosen by the monks of Conception Abbey for its quality as well as its ability to convey truth and faith. Everything is created by hand at The Printery House, from the art design and layout, to painting and lettering, before going to their in-house printing press. That kind of attention explains why more than 5 million religious greeting cards are sold by The Printery House every year. Proceeds from card sales are used to support the Abbey and Conception Seminary College.
