  • I passed by it for years before finally going. I'm not Christian but I don't think you have to be to enjoy this place. Try to aim for modest dress if you go as this is a holy sight. Just so you know, ...  more »

  • I have been several times now and going down the driveway will give you a feeling that you're entering a special place. i go into the abbey church and go to the lake. When in the abbey church its so peaceful & quiet and its no joke you can actually hear a pin drop. The outside grounds and lake is just as peaceful. Been to the store also. As i leave i feel so much better.
  • I love going the the Monastery. We like to go to walk the beautiful trails that they have leading over the bridge. It is a beautiful and peaceful place to recharge you. When I am not walking, I love to visit the store to find unique treasures. Visiting with the monks is such a special art of the visit!
  • Nice overall experience. Left alone while while we browsed their gift shop. Wonder hand made food stuffs. Fruit was delicious and the fudge was marvelous. A lot to look at and discover. All felt welcoming. I really liked my visit.
  • My husband and I attended a Divine Mercy retreat it was a very relaxing and beautiful experience. Can't wait to go back! The Monastery is situated in a beautiful land and the Bonsai garden & gift shop were a lot of fun. Brother Mark & Father Gerard provided valuable information about God's love for all of us. I enjoyed that there was a diverse group of people (different denominations, ages & races) all welcomed and loved. It's a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with yourself, God, nature & the beauty in silence.
  • I felt as if I had stepped into a place of peace, safety, spirituality, and clarity in the Middle Ages. I would not have been surprised if St. Bernard of Clairvaux had walked past me deep in contemplation. I enjoy each time I visit. I respect the Monastery, the Brothers and the Abbot. Please go and find peace. This place is a fortress against evil, chaos, and out of balance supernatural entropy. It could be an ideal final resting place. God Bless. Shalom. “יהי שלום יהוה אתך. מי ייתן שיחייך אלייך, יגן עליך וייתן לך כוח. יהי יהוה יברך אתכם בידע, בחוכמה ובהבנה.” [Translation from the above Hebrew: “May the peace of Yehovah be with you. May he smile at you, protect you and give you strength. May the Yehovah bless you with knowledge, wisdom, and understanding.”]
