Daily Liturgical Schedule

Monks of the Cistercian Abbey invite you to join them for their daily celebration of the Mass and the Divine Office. We also offer the Sacrament of Reconciliation Wednesday afternoons. Because the Abbey is not a parish, we may not as a rule administer other sacraments, such as First Holy Communion. Under certain circumstances we may preside at the marriages of alumni here in the abbey church and baptize their children.
