A Message from Fr. Boniface, prior

As many of you know our community is quite elderly and unable to receive new members. So we must look forward to the completion of what God has called us to do and be. We are in the process of turning over the operation of the monastery to the Misioneros Servadores de la Palabra (Missionaries Servant of the Word), who specialize in evangelization. We will remain here on the second floor of the monastery and continue to offer daily and Sunday Mass, and whatever other services we can.

We are very grateful to you for making our life possible and know you will welcome our successors with the same goodness you have shown us.


We have posted Fr. Kenneth's annotated translation of the Psalms. You may access it here.

The Monastery of the Ascension is a community of nine Benedictine monks, founded in 1965. We live a life of prayer, work, and reading, according to the Rule of St. Benedict. We serve the Catholic Church and people of Southern Idaho by ministries of hospitality, education, spiritual direction and ecumenical activities.
