    Are women invited to participate?

    1. Yes, women are certainly invited. The course does not take place within the monastery itself.

  2. I am very interested in this course; however after examining the information, I am unable to locate information concerning fees, lodging, etc.

    1. If you navigate to the Summer Program 2012 Tab at the top of the page, and then scroll down near the bottom, you will find the following:

      Cost: 675 Euro... This covers tuition, room, and 1/2 board in Norcia. 1/2 board includes a light breakfast and a multi-course Italian style dinner, leaving the midday meal to be covered by the participant. Participants may wish to bring some extra pocket money for optional excursions, souvenirs, etc. Payment can be made by check, credit card, or paypal account through our donations page. If paying with US Dollars, simply calculate the amount necessary based on the exchange rate at the time of payment.

      Feel free to contact us with any further questions.

  3. What happens if the exchange rate changes before the time

    1. Nothing really happens if the exchange rate changes before the time of the program. In fact, it certainly will change. It changes every day. Therefore, the only real possibility of making a payment from one currency to the other is to accept the exchange rate as it stands at the moment of the transaction. Hope that helps.
