  • RETREAT!! Wonderfully run gift shop. Hand-crafted art. The best selection spiritual life books anywhere! Liturgical HOURS prayed properly as parishes should do!

The orientation is great, attending the monks chanting is peaceful, and perusing the library, walking the grounds and hiking the area are all very rejuvenating. The hospitality of the monks is amazing and all is on a free will offering basis. In addition, you can support them by purchasing wonderful items at their gift shop (which is closed Sunday). You can pick up gifts and mementos of a fantastic stay here!
