St. Romuald Day: Camaldolese Benedictines


One observance of the Camaldolese has both a monastery and a laura on the same property. Another observance has only the laura.


Transfiguration Monastery (nuns) in Windsor, NY, is also affiliated with the Camaldolese.


I was blessed to visit New Camaldoli Hermitage in beautiful Big Sur, California some years ago.

The monks are having a difficult time there now! A bridge collapse and a massive landslide from our record rainfall earlier this year has left them isolated and unable to provide retreats (a main source of revenue) until repairs are made.

A blessed and happy Feast Day of St. Romuald to all, and pray for the monks.
