Whoever you are, if you choose to become a guest of St. Andrew's Abbey you will be more than welcome: simply
by your presence here you will play a vitally important role in the daily life of the monastic community, for whom
receiving guests is deeply rooted in our journey into God through prayer and work.
The monks of Valyermo would be delighted to welcome you here, where we trust you would experience some of
the reality to which a great Benedictine motto refers: a dynamic and creative "peace." For now let us welcome you
to the online home of our Retreat House!
