abbey guest house

“Let all guests who arrive be received like Christ, for He is going to say, ‘I came as a guest, and you received Me’” (Matthew 25:35)

Available by reservation to men and women who wish to spend several days with us in quietness and prayer. There are no conferences, nor is there a rigid schedule to follow, but a monk is available for spiritual direction and confession. Weekday retreats begin on Monday at 3 pm and end on Friday by 9:30 am. Weekend retreats are from Friday at 3 pm through Sunday at 3 pm. Reservations may be made by letter or telephone.

The opportunity for enjoying silence and solitude is a special part of your retreat. Please share this with the monks by helping maintain the quiet of the surroundings and respecting the privacy of the monastic quarters.

    Looks like a very nice abbey. I go on yearly retreats to St. Joseph’s Abbey (trappist) in Spencer Mass. I recommend to all – go on a retreat, for prayer and peace.

    Blessed Mother Teresa said “In the silence of the heart, God speaks.”

    God bless…
