Should you ever find yourself near our back door to New England, you are most welcome to visit and pray with us or simply to have some quiet time for reflection. The Nuns are located about 2 miles east of the village of Cambridge, NY, while the Monks are about 4 miles further east. New Skete is located approximately 45 miles northeast of Albany, NY, and approximately 20 miles northwest of Bennington, VT in the gentle and lovely Taconic Mountains, which geologically sideswipe the Green Mountains of Vermont, just north of the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts.
