Information for Visitors

Our gates are open from 6:00 AM to 7:00 PM, and everyone is welcome to visit. For visitation by large groups, we ask that you please call the Monastery before visiting. If you would like to speak with one of the monks, or if you would like to have confession with our priest-monk, we ask that you please call beforehand in order to schedule an appointment.
Due to lack of resources, there is currently no overnight stay available for pilgrims at the Monastery, but within 5 - 10 minutes away there is a hotel and a motel.
