***Coronavirus Protocols***

Dut to restrictions related to the pandemic, at this time we can host a maximum of 100 faithful at our liturgies. Please check the News section of our website ("Abbey Announcements") for further information about our liturgies during the coronavirus pandemic.

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.
