In 1981 three monks of Belmont began monastic life at Tambogrande in the north of Peru at the invitation of the Archbishop of Piura.

In August 2006 the community moved to Pachacamac in the Diocese of Lurin, less than an hour south of Lima.

The latest news can be found on the monastery's website (in Spanish) with wonderful photographs of the new monatery.
