About Us

CareNotes are written for people dealing with intensely emotional situations who are looking for concise easy-to-read guidance and support. That’s why these support booklets have been designed with smaller, more manageable sections.

Take One – and take heart. Give One – and give hope.

CareNotes, a ministry of Saint Meinrad Archabbey, are concise 5×7 booklets written to provide uplifting guidance to those who are hurting. These wellness-oriented booklets address real-life emotional, physical and spiritual needs with topics that include grief, aging, healthcare, mental wellness, family care, spiritual support and more. Whether you are dealing with difficult emotions or you minister to someone who is, you’re sure to find the topic that applies directly to your situation. The down-to-earth style of each CareNote offers relatable advice to help you heal – mind, body and spirit.

CareNotes began as a division of Abbey Press Publications in 1988 and has grown to distribute over 100 million CareNotes across the globe. CareNotes are an outstanding wellness resource for the hospital, hospice, nursing home, workplace, church, school or funeral home. They can be found displayed in reception areas, break rooms and lounges in hospitals, clinics, churches and health care offices throughout the country.

All CareNotes proceeds support the prayer and work of the monks of Saint Meinrad Archabbey. All proceeds support their prayer and work. Learn more about our mission at
