    • Closed to Day Visitors. Due to the coronavirus, the Monastery is temporarily closed to day visitors. There will be an updated notice here and on the voice mail announcing the re-opening of the Monastery for restricted day-visits.
    • Open to Food Offerings. We are happy to once again allow visitors to bring same-day food offerings for the monks. Due to the pandemic we still can’t have large crowds, so we are limiting food offerings to two people/families per day. There is an online app to reserve in advance a day to bring food offerings. Please follow the sign up! button below and follow the instructions. You also may contact Isabella at IMT25@yahoo.com with any questions.
    • Food donors are still asked to sit outside the sala and observe the almsround from a distance, and masks are required.
