Upon visiting the Hermitage please dress modestly as befits the dignity of your Holy Baptism. Please respect the Brethren of this Holy Hermitage and their struggles by being consciously modest and respectful along with a heartfelt reverence due to this holy place in the wilderness. This Hermitage is in a desert–very hot in the summer and very cold in the winter. It is best to wear all-natural fibers, a good hat, cotton socks, and shoes that will protect you from cactus spines. Layer your clothing in wintertime.
