Christmas in a convent gift vouchers offered

An association of Austrian monasteries, churches and convents has got together in a bid to offer a Christmas experience free from commercial pressure.

The Klosterreich project is planning to open up Christmas markets on church properties in December and will include the opportunity for prayer, meditation, singing and guided tours along with the offers from stalls offering only handmade art products and food and drink.

But the organisers are also offering people the chance to escape by living at the monastery or the convent as a visitor over Christmas and New Year, joining with the nuns and monks in prayer and meditation to discover the real meaning of Christmas.

The Klosterreich Christmas markets in Austria will only open in the final month before Christmas, argiong that starting too soon robs the festive period of its special meaning.

Church choirs of being trained up to provide Advent music and most of the stalls will be selling products to raise money for worthy causes.

Gift vouchers are also being offered for the monastery and convent visits.

The full programme what is being offered where we found that www.kloesterreich.at.
