Benedictine Monks of Benet Lake

Benedictine Monks of St. Benedict's Abbey

Saint Benedict's Abbey is a community of Benedictine monks located on the state boarders of Wisconsin and Illinois. Our Abbey is located in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee but we serve both the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and Chicago. Founded in 1945 by Richard Felix, O.S.B., a monk of Conception, Missouri.

Our focus is our ministry of prayer, with the celebration of the Liturgy of the Hours and daily Mass. We gather six times a day to sing and offer praise to God. Another important and major focus of our life is the ministry of our retreat house. Our abbey has been the site for many individuals and groups to find a path closer to God.
