For sale: one Peace Abbey

SHERBORN

The Sherborn Peace Abbey is for sale -- but only to the right kind of buyer.

Officials at the Abbey, a small nonprofit dedicated to peace activism founded in 1988, are looking for a "progressive" buyer for their property who would guarantee they could continue to operate.

The asking price for the facility: around $5.5 million. The money from the sale would be used to set up an endowment, the officials say.

What's in it for the buyer? Buying the property would be "altruism in action," the Abbey says on its website.
