Orígenes

Founded by Viaceli in 1989. Raised to simple priory 21 January 2006, feast of Our Lady of Altagracia, Protectress of the Dominican Republic.

Pais

The foundation was started by Abbot José María de Prada (Abbot from 1983-1989). The Bishop of La Vega, Msgr. Juan Antonio Flores Santana, spent several years in contact with the community of Viaceli requesting a foundation for his diocese. The founders, who arrived in July 1987, spent two years in a house – prepared by the bishop – in Guaigüí, near the city of La Vega.  They had to relocate due to insufficient water and because the solitude was not safeguarded.   In 1989, they moved to Jarabacoa and lived in a house inside the farm, owned by the community, while they built the monastery. In 1996 the community finally settled in their monastery.
