Transfiguration Monastery
Who we are 

We are a small, contemplative Benedictine monastery, located in Windsor, NY, about 165 miles west of New York City, 15 miles east of Binghamton and a five-minute drive from the Pennsylvania border, in the Diocese of Syracuse.

Founded in 1979 by three Sisters, we became formally affiliated with the Camaldolese Benedictine Congregation in 1986. The Camaldolese charism provides for seeking God in both community and solitude, while allowing more outreach and a less restricted enclosure than is usually possible for contemplative nuns. 

Our small number permits flexibility, creativity, abundant use of individual gifts and the opportunity to build a monastic foundation.
