St. Peter’s Abbey in Muenster, Saskatchewan, Canada is home to 14 Benedictine monks. This includes eight priests and 6 brothers.

The Abbot of St. Peter’s is Peter 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.
