The monastery has benefited greatly from the help of generous volunteers.

If you live close by and wish to offer service, two great ways you can do this are:

  • offering rides
  • shopping for groceries and bringing them to the monastery (we can reimburse you from our food funds)

We've also been grateful for people who have noticed that our buildings needed maintenance and offered to do the repairs for us. We can always use help with these sorts of construction and repair projects.

If you have other special skills that you think might be useful to us, please contact us to talk about them.


Please write to let us know when you can come – for a morning, an afternoon or a few days in the quiet of simple monastic life –sharing meals, meditation and work together.

You might need to fill out application form for staying overnight if you are planning to.
