SCHEDULE

 

All are welcome to participate in the liturgical (prayer) life 

along with the monks and nuns, whether it be in the Liturgy of the Hours (Vigils/Morning Prayer, Midday Prayer, Evening Prayer and Compline) or in Sunday and daily Eucharist or Lectio Divina

It is the dream of the Abbey to be mortgage-free by July 2020 and that dream could be a reality! As of August 31, 2019, the balance was about $80,000.  We began a campaign to ask 800 friends to donate $10/month for ten months beginning in October 2019.  To date we have received $33,140 with another $3,290 pledged bringing our balance down to $43,570.

Please consider making a contribution to help us become mortgage debt-free!  Just $10/month or a one-time donation of any amount would be appreciated.

Welcome to Saint Benedict's Abbey

Saint Benedict's is not just a monastery, it is so much more. 
We are a thriving, loving church filled with people seeking and serving God, dedicated to helping our community. We are an ecumenical community, which means that we pray and work for the unity of all Christians.  All baptized Christians who are duly prepared are welcome to receive communion.

We have many diverse ministries within our walls where people utilize their gifts and talents:

God has given them to assist others with spiritual or personal needs.

Please come to visit us.  We would love to meet you and your family. If you are looking for a church home I think you will find Saint Benedict is a safe and loving haven…..  Peace.
