Search Cambridge New York

The communities of New Skete are members of the Orthodox Church in America, which belongs to the world-wide communion of Orthodox Catholic Churches. The monks' monastery is located on a mountaintop in upstate New York; the nuns' monastery is set on a hillside not far away, and the companions' community is halfway between the two. The three houses gather twice daily for services, chanting the Orthodox liturgy a capella in four-part harmony. The New Skete communities breed, raise, and t rain German shepherd dogs, as well as training all breeds at their kennels. All three communities produce gourmet food products, in addition to selling music and translations for church services. The communities also offer hospitality to visitors and pilgrims.
