Summary

Summary

Now in its fourth edition, this revised and expanded volume offers detailed information on accommodations in monastic guest houses in the United States and Canada. For each place listed, Robert J. Regalbuto includes a description and history of the site, directions for reaching it, points of interest, information about meals and lodging, charges or donations, and ways of contacting the guest houses via mail, phone, and e-mail.

For all who need some time away, this book offers assistance in finding "a place apart" for rest, reflection and renewal where, according to the author, "monastic hospitality is offered and a 'holy leisure' enjoyed".
