Online Shop


A virtual extension of the Book Nook gift shop at our Motherhouse, our online store features artisan products made by the Sisters or cultivated on our grounds. 

Since our founding in 1650 in France, the Sisters of St. Joseph have maintained artisan trades to sustain themselves and their ministries. In France, they made lace. Today in Baden, we tend bees and make creams, aprons, note cards, story bowls and more.

25 January 2021: Thank you to all of you who have placed orders, especially during the Christmas season. Your support means so much, especially during this pandemic, when we are not able to invite you into our shop for in-person shopping.
