The Monastery

Visit Our Benedictine Monastery

The Benedictine tradition came to the midwest United States in the 1850s, when the Swiss Abbey of Einsiedeln sent two monks to Indiana to start a new Benedictine monastery. Today, we are a thriving community of Catholic, Benedictine monks who pray, work and live together.

Visitors are always welcome. Join us for prayer or Mass in the Archabbey Church or tour our historic buildings and peaceful campus.
