Abiquiu, New Mexico: Monastery of Christ in the Desert

 

About the Monastery of Christ in the Desert:

Located about 80 miles north of Santa Fe, the Monastery of Christ in the Desert offers a glimpse of life according the the tradition of Saint Benedict.

The day begins with prayer well before sunrise and continues through the day along with work in the Monastery.  With Mass, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and other devotions it offers a wonderful opportunity to get away from worldly concerns and concentrate on God.

Retreat facilities are available. These are not guided retreats, they are for personal retreats.  They require a minimum stay of two days and two nights.

Occasionally groups may book rooms as well.
