Pacem In Terris

Isanti Minnesota

Pacem in Terris is a place of beauty and incredible peace. Everyone who comes through the door feels special because they sense that God has prepared this place just for them. But our community house–Our Lady of Pacem–is only a doorway that leads to the heart of Pacem; the hermitage. In that sanctuary of silence and solitude, riches beyond the human imagination await the open heart. It would be our prayer that one day you will visit as our guest or as a hermit.
