The New St. Ignatius Bakery

The New St. Ignatius Bakery

Our bakery is finally up and running full blast, getting dozens of warm, fresh, golden kulichi ready for the Paschal festivities. It is the last room to be completed in the new St. Herman of Alaska building, which also houses the spacious candle factory and comfy community room, where the brothers meet for spiritual talks and fellowship. The new bakery is dedicated to one of our favorite early bishops, Saint Ignatius of Antioch, the God-bearer, who, in his own words, desired to become “God’s wheat”, to be ground into pure bread, referring to his heroic martyrdom.

With the blessing of St. Herman and St. Ignatius, we anticipate that this bakery will enable us more efficiently, and prayerfully, to provide quality baked goods for the faithful and the brotherhood.

Today, like the shepherds of Bethlehem two thousand years ago, with joy and loving-tenderness we hearken to the triumphant voice of the angel: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men” (Lk 2:14). In hearing these wondrous words, our hearts find comfort and are filled with thanksgiving to the Maker. The Lord Almighty, “the mighty God, the everlasting Father” (Is 9:6), comes down to us and is born into the world as a simple human being.
