“Let all guests that come be received like Christ Himself, for He will say: ‘I was a stranger and you took Me in.’ .. Let Christ – who indeed is received in their persons – be adored in them…”
– Rule of St. Benedict, Chapter 57
Benedictines have always cherished the ancient duty of hospitality to pilgrims, to guests, to the poor, and to many members of other faiths. Christ himself is served in the person of those who come for direction or a kind word. In the busy and noisy world of today, many people seek peace and a place of quiet calm where they can get in touch with God.
The guesthouse provides limited accommodations for overnight guests, including groups (men and/or women) and individual men. For individual women who are searching for a private retreat, we recommend visiting Queen of Peace Monastery in Squamish. All guests are invited to our daily Sung Mass and other prayer times.
Abbey Gardens and Paths
The Abbey grounds are a sacred space where guests are invited to discover God’s presence in the beauty of creation. Many visitors come up to the abbey to view the Abbey gardens and take walks on the paths through the woods. To preserve the peace and atmosphere of prayer on the property, we kindly ask that our visitors observe our Visiting Hours and Visiting Guidelines.
