We are a community of Benedictine monks, founded in 1953 by our brother, the late Abbot Leo Rudloff, of Dormition Abbey in Jerusalem. Inspired by a monastic tradition reaching back to the earliest centuries of the church, and shaped by the Rule of Saint Benedict, our life together centers on prayer, manual work, and hospitality.

Above all, we hope to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ together. Seeking to be, in Brother Leo's words, "an embassy of the Reign of God," we hope that we will, in some measure, foster the healing and reconciliation of the whole human family.

All are welcome to visit our home, and to join us in our celebrations of common prayer each day. Our chapel, visitors' center, and grounds afford an atmosphere in which quiet reflection and prayer are accessible to all.

Men and women wishing to spend several days at the priory, in the atmosphere of our monastic life, are most welcome. For more information see Retreat Accommodations.

The monastery is situated four miles north of the village of Weston, Vermont, at the edge of the Green Mountain National Forest.
