Prayer Times at Santa Rita Abbey
The public is welcome to attend any of our services–Mass or the Divine Office–in the Santa Rita Abbey church.
April – June 2018 Mass Schedule
We are so grateful to Abbot Paul Mark and all our brothers of New Clairvaux Abbey in Vina, CA, for lending us their Fr. Thomas Davis for Holy Week and the Easter Octave! Fr. Thomas returned to his monastery on April 9, and so until further notice, we are once again without a resident chaplain. The Sisters are attending Sunday Mass at the local parish, and celebrating a simple Scripture & Communion Service in the monastery chapel during the week.
When we have a resident chaplain:
Monday-Saturday 7:30 a.m.
Sunday 8:00 a.m.
When we do not have a resident chaplain, we celebrate a Scripture and Communion Service Monday through Saturday at 7:30 a.m. On Sundays, we attend Mass at the local parish, St. Theresa’s in Patagonia and Our Lady of the Angels Mission in Sonoita. Please join us in praying for more vocations to the priesthood!
