“As we progress in this way of life and in faith, we shall run on the path of God's commandments, our hearts overflowing with the inexpressible delight of love.”
— The Holy Rule of St. Benedict
Discerning a vocation to the monastic life is best done by personal experience and an encounter with the monks behind the cloister. We, at Mount Angel Abbey, open our door to men at least 18 years old and are discerning a vocation to come and join us for a three-day monastic discernment experience.
