Due to the well-publicized storms that have damaged the California Central Coast roadway system, we are unable to ship items from the Hermitage at this time, because of road closures. We will reopen this online shop once the roads open up and delivery trucks are able to reach us. We do not have an estimated time for this; it depends on Mother Nature and the progress of road repairs. Please check back here on a weekly basis for any updates. We thank you for your support and prayers. Since we are unable to welcome guests here during this road closure, our main source of supporting ourselves has been taken away. If you care to make a tax-deductible donation to help, your gift, large or small, would be received with gratitude and thanks. Please go to https://contemplation.com/support-the-hermitage/ to learn more on how to donate. Blessings to you.

To enter your donation amount, click the “set donation” button and you will be taken to a secure screen where you can then enter any amount you wish. Then press the “add to cart” button and then the “view cart” button to check out, or continue shopping by clicking the “shop” button at the top of the web page. Thank you!

These tax deductible donations are an easy way to help support our ministry and operations here at the Hermitage. It may be surprising to know just how much effort it takes to keep this beautiful retreat running – everything from repairs to aging infrastructure and buildings, food preparation, grounds maintenance, rising staff costs as monks age and do less of the work, and a myriad of other tasks that must go on each day in order to keep our sanctuary operating and open. We are an “island” in a sea of humanity, located in the wilderness and completely off the grid (supplying our own water and electricity).

Any support, whether monetary or in prayers, is helpful. May God bless your generosity.
