Welcome to the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America

An oasis of peace ~ Hope for the Holy Land

Located in Washington, DC, our historic Monastery is the U.S. home of the Holy Land friars who, for 800 years, have cared for the sacred shrines and the Christians in the Holy Land.

Visit the monastery to explore the full-size replicas of Holy Land shrines, beautiful church and contemplative gardens.  Get to know the Friars, learn more about our history and mission, catch up on our latest news or get involved in our ministry here and in the Holy Land.  We’re looking forward to your visit.
