You will see some of the monks roaming around between the buildings but obviously more at certain times than at others. The wear the traditional black Benedictine habit in the cooler months of the year and a white habit in the hotter summer months. The habit is fairly basic with just a tunic and belt over which a scapular and hood is worn.
