The OLLI SPECIAL EVENTS COMMITTEE

presents a bus trip to

The NEW SKETE MONASTERIES

Wednesday, August 7th, 2019

Bus leaves Stop & Shop parking lot on Dan Fox Drive in Pittsfield at 10:15am, returning at approximately 4:30 pm.


Breathtaking churches, gardens and a waterfall underscore the peace and solitude of New Skete, where we will learn about the history, art and culture of these Eastern Orthodox Christian monasteries. Started in Spring 1966 by 12 former members of Byzantine Rite community these monks came to build a place for themselves. We'll hear about the monks' renowned German Shepherd program training, and get a taste of the nuns' celebrated cheesecake!  Lunch will take place at Country Girls Cafe in Cambridge, NY.

Refunds cannot be made unless space is filled from the wait list.
