“All visitors who call are to be welcomed as if they were Christ.” – St. Benedict

You are welcome to contact us by mail, email, and phone or by visiting.

It would be helpful for you and for us if you would call ahead about coming by. Sometimes we have a large group, a community meeting, or we may be on a Desert Day and therefore not be able to attend to you properly. We want to extend hospitality for you and your loved ones to the best of our ability.
