We want to welcome you to St. Tikhon's website. Our Monastery is open to the general public 7 days a week, from morning till sundown. Our bookstore is open 9:30-4:00 on weekdays.  Our bookstore and Coffee Shop (which brews its own Burning Bush Coffee)  and has free internet service) is open to the general public.
We are pleased to offer tours and our staff can normally give a tour of the Museum to walkin visitors (providing there is enough staff available).  If possible, let us know in advance that you are coming  via email. Tours of the Monastery Church, grounds and Museum are available by appointment.

If you have any questions about our Monastery, the Holy Orthodox Faith, or monastic life, please contact us using our email form.  

In addition to tours, we offer spiritual guidance for those who are interested.  People from all faiths are welcom as well as those who have none.
