This Benedictine Monastery is a home to about 30 monks and brothers. We met Fr James at the gift shop and sort of gave us some information on the history of the beautiful monastery. We walked the hallway with a really high traditional ceiling, very ancient and historical. It has all the dark wood wall which I thought was a very unique design yet very elegant! On both sides of the hallway were rooms with a very tall Cathedral style doors and again with a very distinct design. This place, though it was built in the 1800’s, still looks very clean and very well maintain
Already in our itinerary, visited this holy place, Assumption Abbey, after Theodore Roosevelt National Park in the afternoon. I certainly Read on their website that they have a gift shop selling items such as soaps, candles and lots of religious items made at the Monastery by the monks themselves. I was particularly wanted to look at some of the soaps and so bought a few.
The Abbey grounds, vast and beautiful, quite and peaceful, calm and free from disturbances with all beautiful surroundings. Such an enriching experience!
Had time to attend sunset mass at St Mary’s in this 128 year old beautiful church.
Very well made soap, nicely wrapped and the smell was heavenly! They even have a mention what good the soap will do for your skin.
