Beautiful grounds. Try to get there for the Worship service around noon. THen spend plenty of time in the gift shop. Great selection - especially around Christmas with their coffee and fudge and jams. Don't miss the bonsai garden = another great gift idea

There are walking trails or you can walk around the beautiful grounds. There is a tour available or you can just pop into the church. It is serene and allows for reflection. There is also a café and gift shop. Take home some fruit cake!

I've been visiting this wonderful place on and off for over 20 years. I always leave with a sense of calmness, tranquil and clear minded.

I recommend any person to come in visit this monastery. It has a lot for you to see. You can even plan a bike ride or walk along the river trail through the Monastery property. I would say it is very relaxing.
