Prince of Peace Abbey
A Monastery of The Order of Saint Benedict
Although The Benedictine Monks Of Prince Of Peace Abbey have been in the diocese of San Diego since only 1958, they are members of an uninterrupted tradition of more than one thousand four hundred years in the Church – a tradition of monks who seek God through worship and prayer, work and community life.
Day of Recollection
On Tuesdays or Thursdays we can host a directed or non-directed Day of Recollection for a group of ten to thirty persons. A group may choose to bring in its own speaker, or it may ask ahead of time to have one of our monks serve as the speaker. A group may keep its own schedule, respecting, however, that we serve lunch from 12 Noon to 12:30 p.m.
Groups or individual persons may reserve time and space for their own retreat programs at the monastery. Those on retreat may attend prayers and Mass in the monastery church, or they may keep their own schedule, respecting, however, the monastery’s schedule for serving meals.
Areas Open To Guests and the Public

The monastery’s church is open to guests and the public for silent prayer or for participation in the Mass and prayer services of the monks throughout the day. The monastery’s church is not available for any other activities or services.
