A Community of Contemplative Benedictine Monks in the City

The Monastery of the Holy Cross is a Roman Catholic, contemplative Benedictine Monastery of the Subiaco Cassinese Congregation. Continuing a centuries-old tradition, we live according to the Rule of St. Benedict, seeking God through a life of prayer, silence, work and hospitality. The Monastery was established in the Chicago Archdiocese at the invitation of Cardinal Bernardin in 1991. In 2011, the Monastery was elevated to the status of independent priory by Abbot President Bruno Marin, OSB. ~ The Monastery and Schola Laudis are pleased to announce the release of their first CD!
