you think it's a barn from the outside, you walk in....was very dimly lit. Right away you are looking at the back wall, starting from the right. The whole wall is encased in glass of the nativity scene all the way around.... it takes up 3/4 of the room... the original bethlehem. BREATHTAKING!!! I just stopped and stared....enormous property

I love to visit the gift shop for some unusual hand made jams, scented oils or other handcrafted artwork. Don't miss the cheese the Abbey makes there as well! Before Christmas you can find wreaths...

Vespers is chanted every day at 5 or 5:30 pm in the main church, an incredibly beautiful new wooden building that makes you feel you are literally in the forest.
