Since April 26, 1857, the monks of St. Benedict’s Abbey have lived as a community of Catholic men, praying and working for the good of the world and the glory of God. For nearly 162 years we have been blessed to serve as pastors, educators, and much more – endeavoring to serve the needs of the people of Northeast Kansas and beyond – founding a college, high school, and dozens of parishes throughout Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, and Missouri, as well as a mission house in West Central Brazil.
In celebration of this our legacy and in order to secure our future, we have established the One Legacy • One Future Fund – a fund that provides for the healthcare needs of our elderly and infirm members and the formation and education needs of the next generation of monks. We have been blessed with an all-or-nothing $200,000 challenge gift. We ask that you prayerfully consider helping us match this challenge. These funds will provide for our journey into the next 160 years of prayer and work. Your support is vital as we seek to spread Christ’s Gospel message.
