Holy Wisdom Monastery is open to the public

Current monastery practices during the pandemic

Dane County Public Health dropped the countywide mask mandate on March 1, 2022. After March 1, individual organizations will be relied on to make the safety precautions decisions for their own location based on their own unique conditions. Here is a summary of what we plan to follow at Holy Wisdom Monastery: 

  • Masks are required again for large group gatherings, such as Sunday Assembly worship and memorial services (4/27/22).
  • Masks are not required in other areas of the buildings, but we respect your individual choice.
  • Sunday Assembly worship is open for all who wish to attend.
  • All coworkers are fully vaccinated and we urge others to follow vaccination guidelines as well. 
  • As always, do not come to Holy Wisdom Monastery if you have any COVID symptoms. 

If you have any questions you can contact Toby Grabs at tgrabs@holywisdommonastery.org
