Notification About Closure

Mepkin Abbey, including the gardens, the Abbey church, and the visitors’ center/store are closed to the public beginning today, March 18, 2020, until further notice. We have taken this very difficult action on the advice of professionals in order to protect both the monks and our visitors from the COVID-19 virus. As we continue to navigate these very difficult times, please know that our friends, neighbors, benefactors and the community are in our daily prayers. If you have specific prayer requests, please send them to me at frjoetedesco@gmail.com and I will put your request on our prayer list.

While Mepkin is not able to receive visitors and guests, we want to support our friends and benefactors, many of whom find their horizons reduced to the confines of their living spaces, by providing some reflections and ideas to help you navigate these very trying times. The first is Reflection on Contemplative Confinement for the Layperson.  We will be adding reflections on a regular basis, so, please visit our web site often.
