    My cousin and I have been talking about taking a week and visiting a monastery but we aren't sure where would be the best one to visit. Proximity isn't the primary concern but then more than 500-750 miles would probably be too far.

    We live in Tupelo, MS and would likely have a group of 5 or more men, depending on how it worked out. What are some good choices that are accustomed to visitors? Thanks.

    Forgive me.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Here is one in the mountains of western NC. I cannot vouch one way or another, but I do know that it is in a beautiful rural setting and I am quite familiar with the location.

    If you decide to head to NC, please get in touch.

    That looks like such a beautiful monastery, Clement! Looking at pictures of monks makes me sometimes long for the days I was preparing to enter a monastery.

    This might be a little too far but is also a good choice if you are looking for an English speaking monastery.

    There is also one in Resaca Ga, I've heard good things about them, and I have also heard they have tended to jump jurisdictions. Anyone been there ?

    Oblio,

    I went to this monastery for a day this past summer. It is small with only four monks, but it is also in a very nice setting. However, when I returned home I was told that Archbishop Dmitri has forbidden those in his diocese to go there. I think this has something to do with the jurisdictional hopping.

    BTW, we had 67 at the concert this weekend. Not bad for a lowly band of 10 Orthodox Christians. We were pleasantly surprised by the the turnout and count it as a blessing from God. Thanks for making us aware of the quartet's tour.
