Monastery of St. John of the Cross


With the approval and blessing of Archbishop Donald Bolen of Regina, and after 17 years of hard work, prayer and discernment, this Traditional community of Carmelite contemplatives is in the process of being established in this diocese. We will be following the 1990 constitutions of the Discalced Carmelite nuns, with approval and permission of Archbishop Bolen.

The Monastery is located on sixty acres of land on the Saskatchewan prairies. It includes a large chapel which has recently been completely renovated. The chapel is dedicated to Mary, Mother of Divine Grace. At the present time, the chapel is open only when there is mass scheduled, and the monastery will be open to visitors on designated days to be announced at a later date.

Many thanks to the generous donors who provided for the chapel renovations. Now a monastic wing must be built to accommodate young women who wish to be part of this new monastic community.

If you wish to contribute to the building and establishment of the monastery, please send your gift to the address on the contact page.

Any donation or help would be much appreciated.
