Commerce With Compassion: Social Entrepreneurism for the 21st Century

Bernard McCoy


Very. Rev. Fr. Bernard McCoy, O.Cist. is the Superior of the Cistercian Abbey in Sparta, Wisconsin and the founder and Chief Executive Officer of LaserMonks. com, a nationally known office supplies company. LaserMonks began as an effort to sustain the Our Lady of Spring Bank Cistercian Abbey but it quickly went from gross sales of $2,000 to over $2.8 million. All profits are used to help charitable works around the world. The Cistercian order has also created TorchLight, a foundation for passing on “the torch of kindness” as a vehicle for investing venture capital for good works.

Fr. Bernard’s academic background includes astrophysics, classical liberal arts, philosophy, classical and modern languages, mystical and monastic theology and spiritual formation.
