New Camaldoli is a community of Benedictine monks of the Camaldolese order. Our monks live religiously, in seclusion and prayer for much of the day. Four times a day they gather together for prayer. Other times of the day are spent working, in contemplation or prayer for the world. The monks are stewards of the incredibly beautiful and spiritual land that holds their hermitage, and they invite those seeking solitude, silence and prayer to come stay with them and to even pray with them. The hermitage has 9 single occupancy retreat rooms and 5 private single/double occupancy retreat cottages or “hermitages” for visitors to stay in. All meals are provided. There is no television, no internet, no telephones to distract one from the silent retreats that are offered those seeking a break from the frantic pace of the world. All are welcome to come visit during the day – our chapel, prayer services and lovely bookstore/gift shop are open to the public. Sorry, but only registered guests are allowed in the retreat house areas. Visit our website to find out more information, prayer schedules, or to reserve a retreat for yourself or a loved one. Come disconnect from the frantic world and connect with the voice deep within you.
