Women’s Benedictine Monastery Planned in Ave Maria, FL

Queen of Peace Monastery continues to move slowly toward construction, as the Benedictine Sisters gracefully face obstacles. The Monastery is to be built in a style based on “traditional monastic architecture,” and the church will “welcome those persons who wish to participate in the Divine Office,” sung five times a day.

While some of the Sisters of Queen of Peace Monastery will be a part of Ave Maria University, many will serve God in other ways. These sisters share the town with the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, a few of whom teach at Ave Maria Grammar and Prep.

You can contribute to the creation of Queen of Peace Monastery by purchasing a brick for the building. Please read their newsletter by visiting their website, at http://www.queenofpeace.info/
