Veils by Lily is a family apostolate whose mission is to reignite in our hearts the faith, awe, and wonder of the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. We invite women to proclaim their faith in the Real Presence by making an external sign of their interior desire to humble themselves before God, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament.
We veil as a sign of humility before God, and we do it anytime we find ourselves inside a Catholic church, where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved in the tabernacle.
If you are thinking about beginning this beautiful devotion, remember that it is God before whom you wish to humble yourself. Like a religious habit, your veil is a public proclamation of your desire to submit to the will of God for your life, and of your commitment to answering the universal call to holiness and continual conversion. Your veil is also a sign of the great dignity inherent to a woman, who has the potential to receive life within herself... both human life and the supernatural life of God. This is an important message the world needs to hear, now more than ever!
Veils by Lily is consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Our Mother of Perpetual Help, under the patronage of St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori.

Veils by Lily spent its first year in the corner of Lily's kitchen and the following 6 years in the heart of Liguori, Missouri - across the street from the Redemptorist Mission House and just down the road from the Redemptoristines.
We had a small workshop in the Liguori Publications building, and we were fittingly blessed to be just down the hall from the chapel, where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved.
Our last full day in Liguori was October 13, 2017. The following Monday, we moved to our parish friend Lea Vonderhaar's former F.R.O.G. Early Childhood Center building.
The new building had more space, so in February 2018, we opened our first brick and mortar retail store.
When the pandemic began in 2020, our sales plummeted and we made the decision to look for a more affordable place. We found a beautiful house in historic Kimmswick, Missouri and moved in on November 11, 2020.
