A History of St. Benedict’s Abbey
In 2007 the monks of St. Benedict’s Abbey celebrated 150 years of stability in Kansas. Here is the history of their community, which they created:
The monks of St. Benedict’s Abbey pray and work for the glory of God and the good of the world. Five times every day, the Benedictine monks gather together to pray through the Liturgy of the Hours and the Eucharist and lift the needs of the world up to God; and from those times of prayer flows the work the men perform in service to God and others.
The monks of St. Benedict’s Abbey serve as pastors and ministry support for several parishes in Northeast Kansas and beyond. They serve the students, faculty, and staff of Benedictine College and Maur Hill-Mount Academy in Atchison; as priests, teachers, confessors, and spiritual directors. And they serve as chaplains, regionally and nationally, for religious houses, prisons, colleges, and various ministries.
