Christmas, the Monastery Way

December 20, 2016 - December 25, 2016
West Park NY


Tuesday, December 20 – Sunday, December 25, 2016

Christmas at the monastery is filled with solemnity and celebration as we observe the closing days of Advent and then the great feast of Christmas. We gather together as the shepherds did, to offer praise to God and to pray for peace on earth and in our hearts. A treasured highlight of this time is the decorating of the Guesthouse and the great tree in Pilgrim Hall. Join us as we observe the ancient cycle of monastic prayer from Advent into the Christmas season. Stay for any or all of these days. (Please note that the Guesthouse closes after Vespers on Christmas Day and reopens as usual the following Tuesday afternoon, December 27.)

Cost: $80 per week night/$95 per weekend night; deposit: $80
