Even though the shop was not open that day, one of the ladies took time to help us. Beautiful place. The views are spectacular.
A serene gem just outside of Dubuque. Visit, be blessed and dont forget to pick up some candies in the store.
Wonderful province, I visited on the Assumption of Our Lady in 2016 and had a lovely retreat. This was my first retreat with the Cistercians. The fog that comes from the Mississippi river at sunrise that time of year is something to see. I was able to wake up and pray the Matins and sing some of the prayers as well as work a little with the sisters and they were really kind to return my wool socks when I left them behind! I'm glad to find out some of them worked in post-Soviet Russia in their youth, as that's where I'm from - Belarus. The sung liturgy is absolutely beautiful, nothing like I've encountered at a parish, with unique hymns and antiphons that are a profound and meditative praise of God. Loved the stay!
This is a lovely setting for inspired work. The caramels are divine, but so is the mission of the hands behind them.
What a lovely and relaxing place this is! The caramels can't be beat, either!
