We are officially open!
You are most welcome! According to the Rule of St Benedict - everyone is to be welcomed as Christ. Therefore, even though we are a Catholic Benedictine Monastery, everyone is welcome to come and stay with us. We look forward to greeting you. Our Guesthouse and Hermitage rooms are available for reservations.
Revised Protocols for COVID-19Effective 02/18/2022, The Pecos Benedictine Monastery, together with the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, announced that masks are optional but remain strongly recommended, especially for those over 65, those with medical conditions that make them more vulnerable to the virus, those caring for persons in the previous two categories, and those who remain unvaccinated.
As many of you know, we usually host a Holy Week retreat at the monastery. However this year we are hosting pre-Holy Week retreat. The presenter is Jerry Webber - you may go to these links to learn more about Jerry and his ministry:

Jerry has been offering retreats here for many years, and he is a good friend of the Abbot and the monastery. Likewise, Nancy Sterling has been coming to the monastery for many years and is also a friend and much loved. She will assist Jerry in the presentation of the retreat.
Please plan on taking a few days away from the worries of the world and spend those days with us at the monastery in this beautiful valley bordering the Pecos Wilderness.
We look forward to greeting you and hosting you as we all prepare for the celebration of Easter 2022.
We also continue to pray for our world at this time. There is much going on, many people are suffering and fearful for the future. As a monastic community, we believe it is our part to pray for the needs of the world and humanity. We do this every day during our monastic office and at the daily mass.
Even though we are separated, we unite ourselves with you in spirit. God is with us, God is with you, and He will never let us down. He loves you.
—In Christ, Abbot Aidan, OSB
The Abbey now enters the 71st year of continuous monastic presence in Pecos. We look forward to serving the needs of our neighbors and guests for many years to come.
