Saving Souls Through Monastic Life

Our vision is to unite all men to Christ in His Church, to bring about the triumph of Mary’s Immaculate Heart, and to excel and flourish as a Benedictine community by striving for holiness.

Learn About Our Life

Timeless Spirituality

We celebrate Holy Mass and the Divine Office in Latin according to the Novus Ordo. We express our reverence for the Eucharist with Gregorian chant.

Learn About Our Prayer

Our Work as Prayer

Faithful to the Rule of Saint Benedict, our monks work by the labor of their hands. We practice hospitality through our retreat house where guests are welcomed as Christ, and are invited to enjoy God’s friendship through prayer, fellowship and contemplation of His creation.

Our Daily Work

Christ in the Heart of New England

The Abbey’s pastoral location in Still River, Massachusetts, overlooking the Nashua River, lifts up the soul and makes it easy to say with the psalmist, “The heavens proclaim the glory of God, and the firmament declares His praise.”
