About

Our online gift shop sells the same products you can find at the pop-up gift shop in the lobby of the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in Washington, DC. But for those who can’t visit us and shop in person, we offer this convenient way to get your items delivered straight to your door.

Hand-Crafted With Love

All of our hand-crafted rosaries, crosses and statues, as well as most other items, come from the Holy Land and are imported directly from Bethlehem. The entire Holy Land, including Bethlehem, is well-known for its olive wood trees that have grown there for centuries. Olive wood to this day remains a symbol of peace, livelihood and longevity.

Your Purchase Helps a Good Cause

This gift shop, along with the Monastery itself help support the Christians in the Holy Land and protect shrines and landmarks of the Holy Land. We are proud to be a part of this great cause and we hope you can also join us in our mission by wearing your new olive wood cross or praying with your olive wood rosary.

Please, feel free to contact us with any questions about the gift shop or any of the items we carry.
