St. Peter’s Abbey in Muenster, Saskatchewan, Canada is home to 18 Benedictine monks. This includes eight priests, one deacon, 6 brothers and 3 juniors.

The Abbot of St. Peter’s is Peter Novecosky, the Prior is Father Rudolph Novecosky, and the Subprior is Br. Basil Schaan, O.S.B.

We follow the monastic rule of St. Benedict.  He wrote a rule for Christian life known for its balance and moderation.

This life provides a balance between prayer, work and study.

Traditionally the monastic life has stressed the primacy of the worship of God. The monastic community gathers four times a day for monastic prayer. The first prayer begins at 6:20 am with Lauds and the last prayer begins at 7:30 pm with Vigils.
