Sister Theresa Scheuren, a Benedictine nun, made her first million in this desert hamlet in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. She is working on her second million this weekend at a fall festival fund-raiser to help a monastery and its 25 monks. Scheuren couldn't imagine such large sums of money until three years ago, when she said God called upon her to raise money for St. Andrew's Abbey, a 750-acre ranch in the Antelope Valley with apple orchards and towering trees.

Hidden from the hubbub of traffic and commerce, St. Andrew's Abbey sits on 1,900 verdant acres of cottonwoods, sycamores, pines and apple orchards in the Antelope Valley. Benedictine monks have sought "silence and wilderness" there for more than 50 years. The sign above the entrance reads, "No Hunting -- Except for Peace." Named for the motherhouse in Belgium and dedicated on St. Andrew's feast day, Nov. 30, 1955, this former turkey ranch is home to two dozen monks in flowing robes.

The richness of Father Vincent Martin's world can be seen in his 4-inch-by-3-inch black leather address book. Its robin-egg blue pages are neatly filled with the addresses of the famous: a countess here, a cardinal there, a glamorous Hollywood celebrity. Many other names are lesser known, but equally precious: simple monks, family in Brussels, colleagues in China, lifelong friends in Israel. Father Vincent, who died Tuesday at 87, is best known for his founding of St.

Nestled in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains lies some holy land. There, 500 acres of lush lawns and gardens and desert brush provide a permanent home to 24 monks and a weekend retreat for those seeking religious awakening or just a few days of solitude. Although mention of St. Andrew's Abbey in the Antelope Valley community of Valyermo, southeast of Palmdale, conjures up images of tonsured men painstakingly transcribing biblical passages, there are no walls here. No periods of fasting.

Roadside signs that direct nearly 35,000 visitors a year to the high desert monastery still say "St. Andrew's Priory," but the facility has been quietly upgraded to abbey and the community of black-robed Catholic monks has elected its first abbot. The new status is unlikely to alter the serenity or the distinctiveness of the 36-year-old Benedictine monastery nestled next to the San Gabriel Mountains, 20 miles southeast of Palmdale. St.
