APPROPRIATE DRESS

The Mission is a monastery; it is consecrated ground; it is our Community’s home. We welcome anyone who wants to visit the Mission. We simply ask that they respect our request for clothing that is appropriate for a place consecrated to Our Lord and His Blessed Mother, and in coming to Mass that they dress in a manner that shows reverence for the occasion. Father wears his vestments, the altar servers put on their albs,  and the congregation wears clothes that are appropriate for attending Mass.

BELOW THE KNEE

NO SHORTS

SLEEVES

NO TANK TOPS

MODEST NECKLINES

NO LOW-CUT NECKLINES

LOOSE FITTING

NO MID-THIGH HEMLINES

Also, be alerted that the Mission terrain is fairly rough and rocky, with few paved walk ways. Good walking shoes are helpful; high heels are not. We appreciate your help in making others aware of our request for appropriate dress while attending Mass at the Mission.

We think Our Lord appreciates it too.
