Prayer & Work Live-In

Monastic Live-in

Saint John's Abbey Monastic Dining RoomAs Johnnies, we have the distinct privilege of sharing our campus with a community of Benedictine monks.  A monastic live-in is an excellent way to take full advantage of the unique environment in which we have found ourselves.  Live-ins are a special opportunity to learn more about the lives of the incredible monks who share this space with us by living, working, and praying alongside them for a weekend.  This event is open to any and all Johnnies who would like to see what life in the Abbey is all about.  Live-ins begin with 5PM Mass on Friday and end after lunch on Saturday.

Due to renovations in the Abbey, there will not be any live-ins planned for September 2020.  To accomodate this, there are two organizized opportunities for Fall 2019.

  • Friday, September 27th - Saturday September 28th
  • Friday, November 22nd - Saturday, November 23rd

There is a maxium of six participants per weekend so grab a friend and register today!
