  • The prayer service and monks was reflective and meaningful and a mini retreat experience. We enjoyed the labyrinth and surrounding views.

  • Sitting on my Blessed Mother Earth's lap Outside an Old Reverent Barn On Weston Priory Grounds On a magnificent Spring day Participating in a Prayerful Service Honoring Mother~Father Creator God Under a Brilliant Blue Sky Surrounded with Trees and Mountains With Birds singing along with the crowd Totally surrounded in a pool of LOVE What More Could I Want Or Need! It has been many years since my almost monthly visits to Weston Priory, however, the warm memories are etched in my heart! Pamela Melvin
  • Been coming here for years, and have been here several times for retreat. The Benedictine monks are a great group of guys and Weston Priory is best known probably for its wonderful, humble, and simple liturgical music with the simplicity of the guitar and monks singing in the background. The monks don't offer formal one-on-one spiritual direction or support but their philosophy is that their music speaks loudly for itself and provides spiritual direction in itself. The monastery and grounds are very peaceful and serene and are wonderful places to recharge your inner spiritual soulful batteries. The monks welcome everyone as Christ. Located pretty close to the town of Weston which offers plenty of opportunities for good shopping and exploring. Would highly recommend and if you get a chance to listen and explore their music on Amazon Music, or Spotify, would highly recommend.
  • Peaceful working monastery. Beautiful grounds!
  • Beautiful, peaceful
  • Weston Priory is tucked away in the Green Mountains of Vermont and is close to many ski resorts but I came here for the quiet and beautiful scenery which surrounds the monastery. The Brothers who live here care for the land and welcome any one to visit and join them in prayer and song. They live by the rule of Saint Benedict and while they are not cloistered they do have a strong prayer life. They make maple syrup and sell apples along with their music which you can buy in the gift shop.only ask that people are res They only ask that people are respectful of the surroundings and in keeping with their hours of prayer. It is that rarest of good things on this earth.
