Work is a balance to the prayer life of the monk. It is also an
important part of keeping the monastery self sufficient and "afloat"
financially. The Holy Rule asks that all monasteries be
self-sufficient, so monks have studied the
arts of tending animals and earth for centuries.
Work with us in shops and barns, fishery, woods and fields. Join us as we grow flowers and food in the Cloister gardens, and prepare food and share it in the Refectory. There is also a pottery, a spinning and weaving shed, and a wood shop.
