Volunteers

Are you interested in spending some time with the Lord as a volunteer? We are always in need of a strong pair of hands to help us in the daily operation of the monastery. We accept volunteers throughout the summer months, and sometimes in the fall/winter depending on the need.

As a volunteer, you would be given a work assignment that best suits your skills and talents. Some areas of work might be - kitchen, laundry, gardening, library, wood shop, painting/maintenance, retreat house assistance. You would follow our monastic daily rhythm of prayer and work according to the Rule of St Benedict. You would receive room and board.

Length of stay varies depending on each individual application, but generally speaking we allow volunteers to stay from two weeks up to one month. These time periods can be extended with approval by the Abbot.

References are required and all applications are subject to approval by our Volunteer Committee.
If you would like more information, please call Abbot Aidan at (505) 757-6415 ext 102


If we desire to dwell in the tabernacle of His kingdom, we cannot reach it in any way, unless we run thither by good works. But let us ask the Lord with the Prophet, saying to Him: "Lord, who shall dwell in Thy tabernacle, or who shall rest in Thy holy hill?" (Ps 14[15]:1)
