CLARISSE EREMITE monastery in Fara Sabina (Rieti)
You may reach our monastery in search of peace, of silence, but above all in search of God. To individuals who wish to hear the voice of God in solitude and silence we offer the possibility of remaining a few days in the monastery. To young people who want to understand what is the way to achieve their happiness and serenity we give the opportunity to find, through silence, God who is true happiness and lasting serenity. A sister is always available for personal interviews and the liturgical prayer can be shared with the monastic community. We give groups the opportunity to stay in the monastery by offering them meeting rooms, the church for prayer and the refectory for meals.
We also host pilgrims traveling to Assisi or Valle Santa di Rieti. We represent a good possibility to get a stop for those who are engaged in the Walk of Francis, in the Via Francigena to refresh themselves. We host them in cozy rooms with services and give them the opportunity to participate to our prayer.
Guided tours in the medieval castle where our Monastery is and at the Museum of Silence. You will be led into the internal places passing from the ancient kitchen of 1400, to the old refectory, from the choir of 1600, to the room containing 17 bodies of nuns completely uncorrupted and which remained such from the end of 1700, until you reach the Museum of Silence that turns out to be decidedly innovative in the language as well as in the structure. To the charm of the past is added the testimony of the sisters who today live in the monastery and who live - though in a renewed form - the depth and beauty of silence and prayer, and who are available to live a confrontation with the participants. In fact it will be directly two sisters to lead you in this experience, and the visit will end with the opening of the little store containing our gastronomic production (and not only).
