Being a monastery in one of the remotest locations in the world can sometimes be taken for granted by us who live here, but those who make a short or longer stay, the silence, solitude and stark beauty are usually unforgettable.

We are opening up for day visitors once again, beginning Monday, May 31st, Memorial Day, which is also the unofficial beginning of the summer holidays.

Starting this Monday, our Monastery will be open to daytime visitors each day of the week, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Parts of the grounds, as well the the Monastery Church and Giftshop will be open daily from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Sunday Mass is at 9:15 am.

Because of ongoing health concerns, we are still not taking reservations for private retreats here.

May the Lord keep us all safe, especially travelers over the holiday weekend.

Abbot Christian and the monks
