Welcome

Whoever you may be, whatever may have brought you through our gate, you are welcome among us. Please don't feel that you are somehow intruding on the lives of those who live here. Please do bear in mind that St. Andrew's Abbey is a living monastic community. For the monks, this place is home. It's where we pray, so an atmosphere of peace and tranquility is important and you are invited to respect this. It is also where we work, so there will be a certain ebb and flow of activity about the place and we ask your pardon if this should disturb your own quiet now and again.

Weather Considerations

Nestled in the northern foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, St. Andrew’s Abbey lies on the edge of the Mojave Desert at an altitude of 3,600 feet. Here the seasons are experienced in dramatic fashion. Summers are hot and dry with temperatures reaching into the 100s; winter days are generally sunny, while nighttime temperatures often dip well below freezing. Spring offers glorious blooming trees and flowers; autumn, spectacular color changes. Visitors will find a special beauty in the high desert in each and every season.

Pets and Picnics

Neither is permitted on the Abbey grounds.
