Generosity and Gratitude


The monks of Mount Angel Abbey offer prayers of gratitude every day for you and all our generous benefactors. 

We belong to you and you belong to us!



Visitors tell us they immediately sense our holy Hilltop is a place of peace. It is an exciting place, too.

We are busy forming seminarians for the priesthood, welcoming all guests and retreatants as Christ, providing our community with unmatched library resources, and we are even starting our own brewery! Your support helps us continue these ministries, as our way of offering the light of Christ to the world.

Mount Angel monks maintain a Benedictine monastic tradition that has been a vital part of the Catholic Church for more than 1,500 years. We have prayed the Liturgy of the Hours together, in unbroken succession, since 1882. Come, pray with us!

Your visit

We hope to see you here on the Hilltop soon.

Whether you and your guests are new to the Abbey – or are old friends – please join us for noon prayer, followed by lunch in the Aquinas Dining Hall.

Simply email Maurissa Fisher or call at 503-330-5012.  She will assist you with arrangements and will provide complimentary meal vouchers.


“Let all guests be welcomed as Christ.”

– Rule of St. Benedict


We would love to hear from you! Contact us by email or phone 503-845-3030.


"To give thanks means to give expression to mutual belonging. Genuine thanksgiving comes from the heart where we are rooted in universal belonging."
