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.

Donate to support the Church Organ Programming Endowment Fund

The Abbey Church is an architectural wonder, a holy place, a place of daily prayer, the center of campus worship, and the uniquely recognized symbol of Saint John’s.

We are delighted that we have reached our funding goal of $1,200,000 for the Pasi/Holtkamp Pipe Organ. We are grateful to our many friends who have made this possible! Thank you, and God bless you!

The expanded instrument will inspire many thousands with music from Bach to Rock!   Now, we need resources for funding a program endowment that will be used to support the many types of musical activities the new organ can provide: concerts, special liturgies, guest performers, and other events. We appreciate any future gifts to help us provide these exciting and inspiring musical experiences for many years to come!

For over 150 years, the monks have supported the faithful with their prayers and good works, inspiring us by their faith, their devotion, and their quest for knowledge and search for God. It is our privilege to support them now in their need.
