Book Store


The Monk’s Cell Book and Gift Shop offers a selection of books primarily of religious and spiritual nature. Our gift selection includes a variety of sacred and secular treasures.

We will happily accept orders online through our Etsy Storefront, by e-mail, or by phone (845-384-6660 x3004).

Our online storefront includes listings for our incense, calligraphy prints by Br. Roy, the St. Augustine Prayer Book, and Holy Cross t-shirts and sweatshirts.

Did you know you can order nearly any book through our bookshop?

Please consider supporting the monastery with your book orders instead of those big box retailers!

You can e-mail your book orders to us or submit an inquiry via our Etsy Shop. We’ll then place an order with our distributor, who will ship your books directly to your home or office from their warehouse. The charges on your card will read “Holy Cross Monastery.”
