Blessings Program

The Conception Abbey Blessings Program is an opportunity to:

  • honor a friend or family member,
  • memorialize a deceased loved one, or
  • commemorate a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary, or wedding.

Your gift also furthers the work of the monks of Conception Abbey in their apostolates and ministry.

The person being honored - or, in the case of a memorial the person’s immediate family - will receive a personalized card conveying the donor’s intentions.

For more information, contact the Development Department at (660) 944-2824 or

Please remember these people in prayer:
