The Cenacle Press at Silverstream Priory in Ireland

Many readers of LAJ are quite familiar with the Cenacle Press at Silverstream Priory in Ireland.  The monks’ online shop offers a wide variety of Catholic items and books, a boon to the Catholic faithful in Ireland and the EU looking for Catholic titles from American or UK publishers such as Loreto Publications, TAN Books, Sophia Institute Press, Baronius Press, and Ignatius Press, etc.

Readers may also be interested in the altar cards and liturgical prints the Cenacle Press offers. The monks' site recently received two very positive reviews on NLM (here and here).  They also offer prints as sacristy art or to decorate a rectory or home.  

Additionally, Silverstream Priory has a selection of greeting cards that include Easter cards.  I take this opportunity to direct our readers to the recently posted Easter cards from Silverstream Priory's monks. They feature a linocut block print by one of the monks, an Easter card reminiscent of many Liturgical Movement pieces from the 1940s and 50s. The monks have released a short video detailing the process behind the block print image, seen here.  

Also popular on their site are the handcrafted rosaries. They are made with intricate craftsmanship, as indicated in the symbolism of the ‘Catechetical Knot,' seen here.  Praying and working in the enclosure of the monastery, the monks of Silverstream have a special focus on Eucharistic Adoration and prayer for the sanctification of priests. They live a traditional monastic life, celebrating the liturgy according to the Usus Antiquior, cultivating the land, offering hospitality to clergy, and publishing. They are a rapidly growing community and this year marks their tenth year in Ireland and fifth anniversary as a sui juris monastery. For more information, you can visit their website here.
