Welcome to the Monastery
Seeking a hidden life of contemplation,
the monks of the Hermitage of the Annunciation disappeared into the woods of Lunenburg County near New Germany, off Goose Chase Road, in 2004.
In this little hermitage,
following the age-old traditions of the Eastern Orthodox Church, the monks strive to live a simple life following their daily rule of prayer, reading and study, sharing their life with the few pilgrims, and making a living with their hands from the forest and earth.
