Visiting the Monastery

Visitors are welcome. We are generally open from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm from Tuesday to Saturday, but it is good to call, to make sure we are available to accommodate you or if you would like to attend daily services.

We ask that all visitors dress modestly. Men should wear long sleeved shirts and pants. Women should wear long sleeved blouses, long skirts or dresses. Additionally, women are asked to wear scarves when attending services. Children are expected to be kept close, and not allowed to roam freely. Smoking and pets are strictly forbidden.

Overnight visitors

For men who would like to stay overnight, call to make arrangements. Donations are appreciated to help cover costs. For women and couples, there are various B&Bs and Inns available on the island. You can stay overnight there and then attend services with us during the day.
