Making church vestments and altar linens has been a ministry of School Sisters of Notre Dame in St. Louis since 1898. 


Located at the St. Louis campus of the Central Pacific Province, a staff of six sisters design and sew vestments, banners, and altar linens in a spirit of prayer for the recipients of their handiwork.  


Each item is created with beauty and simplicity to enhance the worship of God who is the source of all beauty.
