Description: Some folks come to see the Mepkin Abbey Church and the Nancy Bryan Luce Gardens. They might stay only a few minutes or they may walk the Gardens leisurely and remain for an hour or more. The Guestmaster greets them at the Reception Center, answers any questions they may have and directs them to the Gardens. For those wishing to visit the Church, there are guided tours at 11:30 A.M. (Tuesday through Saturday) and at 3 P.M. (Tuesday through Sunday). Mepkin is closed to Visitors on Mondays. Mushrooms and garden compost from the Abbey’s farm, and candies, preserves and creamed honey from other Trappist Abbeys are available at the Reception Center Gift Shop
