Updated Monastery Schedule of Openings.
November 8, 2021
Our Abbey Gift store is NOW OPEN for the Holiday Season from 11:00 AM to 4:30 PM Mon-Sat.
The Abbey Church continues to be closed as we undergo a major renovation project of our aging church. We expect to be partially completed in March of 2022, which will allow us to open for liturgical prayer services. We apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to that joyous time when our friends and many visitors can rejoin us for our daily prayer services. Although we are closed for liturgical prayer, the church doors are open for private prayer during this construction project.
Our Retreat House is closed and will reopen when the Abbey Church is opened for liturgical services.
The Monastery Food Pantry will reopen after the Holiday season in late January. Please check back here for the opening date.
The monastery grounds remain open from 6:00 AM to 7:00 PM, and all are welcome to stroll the meditative paths or visit the lakeside.
The monastery trailhead to the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area is open daily from Dawn to Dusk. Explore Arabia Mountain Path with its scenic walking, hiking, and biking trails.
During these pandemic times, let's remember that God is with us in all circumstances. Let's also remember that the best way to show our love for Him is to show our love and concern for one another. May God see us through these difficult times, comfort the sick, and grow our faith, hope, and love. May God grant us evermore His kindness and consolation.
