  • Wonderful Franciscan crown built into the cloister surrounding the monastery. We were able to see some reproductions, including reproductions of ancient Christian catacombs, Bethlehem and the Holy Sepulchre. The gardens are also worth a trip in and of themselves. The staff is friendly, entrance and parking are free. Give yourself at least an hour.
  • Confessions here Monday through Saturday at 9, 10, 11, 1, 2, 3 and 4 o'clock. Early morning weekday mass in chapel. Beautiful garden with stations of the Cross. Gift shop in back, way back to right of main building. Super clean public restrooms inside too.
