Saint John's Abbey Vocations

"Listen carefully, my son, to the master's instructions, and attend to them with the ear of your heart." RB Prologue


For over 1,500 years, Benedictine monks around the world have followed the teachings of Jesus Christ by choosing to live together under the Rule of Saint Benedict. The monks of Saint John's Abbey follow in the footsteps of this ancient tradition, and we've designed this website to give you a sense of what our communal life in Christ is like in the 21st Century.

If you're a man looking for a way to seek God more deliberately, this website is meant especially for you. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions that aren't answered in the pages and images to follow.

May your visit here help you begin to discover what is possible when you give up everything to follow Christ. Be strong and take heart! Trust in the Lord!
