Directions

From the WEST:

  • Take I-81 South to I-64 East. Stay on I-64E until Exit 107 (exit to Route 250).
  • At the end of the exit ramp, turn LEFT onto Route 250 (EAST). After about 1 mile 250 intersects with Route 240 at a traffic light.
  • Turn LEFT onto Route 240 (going NORTH now). Continue on 240 through the little town of Crozet.

In the middle of Crozet, Route 240 makes a 90 degree turn to the right and goes EAST to Charlottesville.

DO NOT MAKE THIS RIGHT TURN, but

  • continue straight ahead. You will then be on Route 810.
    Stay on this road until it ends – 4 miles beyond Crozet-in the tiny township of White Hall. Route 810 dead-ends here at Route 614 (also called Garth Rd.). Turn RIGHT, and
  • continue EAST on this road for 2 miles. Watch for a sign at Lisbeth Farm (on your left) &
  • prepare to TURN LEFT onto MILLINGTON RD. (Route 671). After about 1 mile, Millington curves to the left and you will cross Moormans River (small one-lane bridge). Just after crossing the bridge (about 30 feet) TURN LEFT onto CLARK RD (Route 674). This is a narrow gravel lane, so proceed with caution – watching for on-coming traffic.

The monastery entrance will be on your right after ½ mile. There is a white sign at the driveway (OUR LADY OF THE ANGELS MONASTERY). Drive up to the main door (red brick building with bell tower) to park. Ring the doorbell outside (to the right of the doors) – then step inside & wait for a sister to greet you.
These directions may seem complicated, but when you drive it, you will find it is quite easy.
