IHM Altar Bread Ministry

The IHM Sisters became a distributor of altar
bread products in September 2017, when the
Sisters of Mary Reparatrix transferred this
long-time ministry of theirs to the IHMs. We
felt honored to be asked to continue the Altar
Bread Ministry and are grateful to the Sisters
of Mary Reparatrix for entrusting this ministry
to us and guiding us to learn all the aspects of
the ministry. We use mainly Cavanagh breads
and work hard to offer the same quality of service given by the SMR Sisters.

We are able to provide the following types of
altar breads.

The IHM Altar Breads ministry strives to be well-stocked
but also to have the freshest breads available as needed.

Some needs are seasonal; others may change according
to the preference of the presider. For your convenience,
we can ship orders automatically on a monthly or
quarterly basis, providing you with worry-free delivery.
We also take call-in orders, shipped via UPS the same-
day or next day. On request, we are happy to provide
a sample of the breads we supply if you’re not familiar
with them.

The IHM congregation has a variety of ministries and many retired and aged members and will appreciate your support. We do not  want to take customers from another religious community, but if you currently purchase from a commercial business, we would welcome orders from your place of worship.

Please contact us for further information and a price list.
