Because of the covid-19 pandemic, the Monastery will be under quarantine until December 31, 2020 and/or until further notice. So currently there are no public liturgies or retreats. We will reopen as soon as possible. We continue our Masses and Liturgy of the Hours and remember you daily in our prayers. We are available for sacramental conciliation or spiritual direction, but if you are able please make an appointment. Please keep us in your prayers.

The Monastery of the Ascension is a community of about ten Benedictine monks which has been in Southern Idaho since 1965. We live a life of prayer, work and reading, according to the Rule of St. Benedict. We also serve the Catholic Church and the people of Southern Idaho through various ministries: parochial work, retreats, teaching and scholarship, ecumenical activities, counseling and spiritual direction, and social service.
