The Del Monte Forest and its beaches are places of sacred beauty. Our chapel and garden, in the heart of the Forest, exemplify that beckoning beauty. Come to meditate on weekdays, and worship in community on Sundays.  

Find us at the entrance to Stevenson School's campus, in Pebble Beach. We're not easy to find, it takes some persistence—just like finding God.

You are welcome anytime.
