The Sisters of Holy Dormition Monastery have daily prayers, (Hours of the Church) as well as Divine Liturgy on Saturday and Sunday. Our Retreat program is oriented around this schedule, which allows the guests to take advantage of this time for prayer and reflection if they wish.
The Monastery is located on many acres of woodlands and gardens. We are grateful to have such a beautiful and holy setting for our retreat.
