Mount Angel Abbey

Mass & Prayer Schedule

The Abbey church is the heart and soul of the Hilltop, where the monks live and pray. Rooted deeply in the 1,500-year-old Rule of St. Benedict, monks of Mount Angel Abbey gather in the Abbey church for prayer six times each day for the celebration of the Holy Eucharist and the Liturgy of the Hours. Guests are always welcome and are encouraged to join with the monks in prayer. Books are provided in the vestibule of the church. Prayer begins five minutes after the Abbey bells begin ringing.
