Monasteries


 

The breathtaking churches, the extensive gardens and waterfall feature and the peace and solitude of New Skete welcome you to learn about its history, art and culture. 

A typical visit to New Skete includes a tour of the churches, with one of the brothers giving a lecture on their history and the icons depicted on the walls, a question-and-answer session, a visit to the Meditation Garden, a slice of cheesecake, a visit to the monks’ gift shop and a stop at the nuns’ monastery to purchase cheesecake for home.

 You may even catch a glimpse of the famed New Skete German Shepherd dog.

The fee for this tour is $6.00.  This covers the slice of cheesecake and a small stipend for the monk providing the tour.

An additional fee of $4.00 is needed for the bakery tour.

There is ample parking and buses are easily accommodated. 
New Skete tours are wheelchair accessible.
