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

The Abbot is Fr. Peter Novecosky, the Prior is Br. Basil Schaan and the Subprior is Br. Benedict VanGinkle.

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 and once a day for Mass.
