Message from Father Abbot

This Community is a monastic institute wholly ordered to contemplation. The monks dedicate themselves to the worship of God in a hidden life within the monastery under the Rule of St Benedict. We lead a monastic way of life in solitude and silence, in assiduous prayer and joyful penitence as defined in these Constitutions, thus rendering to the divine majesty a service that is at once humble and noble.

The treasure of our hidden life is the celebration of the Latin Rite Mass, both in its liturgical form and in our Daily Sung Office throughout each day. The Worship of Christ Truly present in the Blessed Sacrament is the essence of our Call to the monastic life and the foundation of our Catholic Faith. We humble ourselves to extend to our visitors a welcome to join with us in prayer our daily life of following the Rule of Saint Benedict.

Prayer To Saint Michael The Archangel

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
