Our monastery buildings, including the two chapels and the guest house on our millpond, stand because of the labor and gifts of many friends and benefactors.

We call our life "A call to serve God, a call to serve the Church..." We fulfill our call through prayer, work and hospitality.

We invite you to join us for a brief visit as a pilgrim, a longer stay as a guest or for a lifetime of monastic sharing in:

  • Liturgical prayer
  • Prayer in solitude
  • Participation in the sacramental life of the Church
  • Community life
  • Personal growth through repentance
  • Hospitality
  • Work and stewardship

"...until we reach the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God; full maturity; the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ..."

— Ephesians 4:13

Please pray for us, that we may grow only as the Lord wills. May He continue to raise up sisters as well as friends so that the monastery may be a blessed place of prayer and pilgrimage.
