There’s A Monastery Hidden Near The River In Maine And You’ll Want To Visit

In a world where the news is always on and it’s hard to find a moment of rest, discovering new ways to relax is ultra-important. For some that might mean a good book inside. For others, a nice rest day might include time with friends enjoying a meal. We love both of those things, but we also enjoy the cool breeze of a day outside in Maine. And this peaceful spot in Kennebunk is a great place to find it.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

St. Anthony’s Franciscan Monastery is just as peaceful as it sounds and you can visit for Holy Mass Monday through Friday at 7:30 a.m., Wednesday and Friday at 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday at 8 a.m., and on Sunday at 9:15 a.m. and 11 a.m. You can also extend your quiet time by booking a stay overnight at the Franciscan Guest House, which you can learn more about here. You can also check out the main website for more information on the history and how to visit. They can be reached at 207-967-4865.

There are so many beautiful places to enjoy quiet moments. Overlooking the Gulf of Maine, this picturesque chapel is a peaceful place for fresh air.
