The tour concludes with at the gift shop, which is made up of two medium-sized rooms. The gift shop has numerous Catholic gifts and trinkets. There are wooden and metal crosses on the walls, countless prayer cards and rosaries, statues of various angels and biblical figures, as well as Bibles and religious children's books.
But, one thing that the monks at the Grotto take great pride in is their monk bread. It comes in a few different flavors and is made fresh daily. The monks also produce their own coffee blend. Brother Christopher roasts and grinds the beans to produce his Benedictine Brew low-acidity coffee.
While one specific monk makes it, they all take credit for it, as they do for everything that goes on at the Grotto. Everyone has their own responsibilities, but at the end of the day, they are one collaborative community.
After your tour of the Grotto, you are welcome to explore the rest of the campus.
