Worship & Work

Deep calls to Deep

At the heart of the 1500 year Benedictine spiritual tradition, "Worship and Work" succinctly describes the daily rhythm and spiritual dynamic of the monks of the Order of Saint Benedict.

A vocation to Worship, the first Work of the Benedictine monks is Worship. The Benedictine Work of Worship; the liturgy of the hours, daily Mass, and the ancient tradition of lectio divina, strives to serve to the spiritual need of the world and Church.

Daily Work among the Benedictine monks articulates and punctuates the spiritual life of the community, giving physical expression to the spiritual fruits of a life of Worship.

Worship inspires Work. 
Work reveals Worship.

Guesthouse Program Endowment


Donate to the Guesthouse Program Endowment

The Saint John's Abbey Guesthouse has fully achieved its vision of being a place of retreat, prayer, and reflection for all. The abbey seeks support for an endowment to further develop spiritual and pastoral programs and retreats at the guesthouse and to ensure affordability to those who might otherwise not be able to participate.

The abbey is the lifeblood of the Saint John's community. The spirituality and development of future monks ensures the value of a Saint John's education.
