Dear Friends, Neighbors, Retreatants and Associates who have accompanied and assisted us through the years. We thank you for your love and support all these years.


As many of you know, our monastic community has diminished significantly over the last ten years. Recently two of our brothers returned to our founding Mother House in Spencer, MA. As a community, we have been discerning with the leadership of our Order how to move forward in our discernment process. 

We have decided that as of June 30th of this year we will no longer be accepting retreat reservations in our guest facilities.

As of now we are fully booked but if you like to add your name to the waiting list please email us at:

This will enable the brothers to carefully focus their time and energy, personally and communally, on the needed next steps in our closure process.

Of singular importance for us at this time is where our continuing

desire to live the Cistercian monastic life takes us from here. 

We will continue to keep you informed as this process unfolds. *Please know that, at this stage, there are many questions we are not yet able to answer. We will keep you informed as our plans develop and we know more.*
