The gift shop is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays. It is also open other days upon request, or when groups are present at the Mount.

The Mount Saint Joseph Gift Shop offers an array of one-of-a-kind handcrafted items, some of which are made by the Ursuline Sisters, while also offering a wide array of gift ideas for any occasion. Greeting cards, books, and various religious items await your visit. The Ursuline Sisters, and friends, make various embroidery pieces, dishcloths, pot holders, pillowcase dolls, and other items by hand. Handmade scarves, hats, gloves, children caps, shawls, and table runners make beautiful gifts to give someone or to keep for you. Wrap yourself in a handmade prayer shawl and feel the history and tradition of nearly 150 years of the Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph. Some of the biggest selling items in the gift shop are the quilts. These quilts, made at or for Mount Saint Joseph, can only be found at the gift shop. They are made by Sisters, associates, alumnae and friends of the Sisters.

Retreat Center cookbooks and Mount Saint Joseph T-shirts and sweatshirts are great mementos to take home after a visit. Traditional and specialty rosaries, as well as holy cards are a popular item at the gift shop. If you need a gift for someone taking that important step into the next sacrament, welcoming a new baby, or just commemorating an important day, the gift shop has many options to choose from. Seasonal, handmade wreaths, children’s books, picture frames, statuary and other collectibles from Mount Saint Joseph can be just the answer when you want a gift with a deeper spirituality to it.
