Hosts bagged and ready to be shipped off to our customers

Altar Bread Distribution

We distribute unleavened wheat altar breads (hosts) to churches for use in the celebration of Eucharist (Mass).

Altar breads are available in various sizes in white or whole wheat.
The fabrication of the bread for the Eucharist is a ministry that has been entrusted to the consecrated women of the Church since the earliest times. Many communities of contemplative women throughout the world continue to bake Eucharistic bread. This ministry, which they lovingly fulfill, at the same time provides them with a means of support.

The Benedictine Sisters of Clyde have developed the fabrication of altar bread on a large scale and invited other communities who could not invest as much time and capital in this task to share in their undertaking. They provide the breads in bulk while we sort, package and ship them.

We would suggest you order from a local community if there is one in your Diocese who supplies altar bread. If you choose to order from us you will be helping to support the work of prayer to two contemplative communities.
