Garden


Our monastery stands in twenty-two acres on a rise of land beside the sea. When the early monks built their monasteries, they sank their roots into the ground and fell in love with their woods, fields, valleys. Indeed this love of one's monastery and its surroundings is something integral to Benedictine life. It forms the object of a special vow: stability. The beauty of our surroundings nourishes and sustains our search for God.
