Guests are welcome to join the sisters in prayer and share together in the contemplative life. The peaceful and relaxed atmosphere at the monastery makes it a great place for a spiritual retreat. Anyone can join for daily prayers, meditation and celebrations.
The monastery's ensuite guest rooms are simple, clean and comfortable, the showers run with hot water and all meals are available if required.
