Who We Are

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Saint Benedict Abbey is a Roman Catholic monastery located in the village of Still River, Massachusetts. We dedicate ourselves to living our Catholic Faith through prayer, work, and study. We are consecrated to God by monastic vows and united to each other by fraternal charity.

We are one of the few religious communities in the United States who celebrate the Novus Ordo Mass and the Divine Office in Latin. We celebrate liturgies and feast days with reverence and virility, focused on Christ in the Eucharist.

We are members of the Swiss-American Benedictine Congregation, a network of autonomous monastic houses residing in the United States, Canada, and Central America.
