Video: Trappist monks

First slide

Just off Route 7 in Berryville, a group of monks live a hidden life in prayerful service to God and the Church.

The Trappist monastery is located in the heart of the Shenandoah valley on 1200 acres of beautiful Virginia countryside. The brothers go to great pains to care for the environment while also using it to support themselves and their vocation.

Visitors are welcome to visit the brothers at the Abbey for Mass and vespers. They also encourage everyone to take advantage of the monastery retreat house and experience the rejuvenating effects of God's creation.
