Benedictine life revolves around humble work and the flowering of contemplative prayer. The primary daily work of most of the brothers is simple and in service of basic communal needs: cooking, cleaning, laundry, gardening and repairing buildings and machinery. We also have several industries that help to support our life.
Benedictine B&B: Our Bed and Breakfast is one of the most popular in the city of Chicago. We combine a great location with monastic hospitality to give our guests a memorable experience of the city. Most brothers contribute to the work of the B&B through cleaning, cooking breakfast, or welcoming guests. For more information, or to make a reservation, please click here.
Gift Shop: Our shop carries various items made at monasteries or reflecting monastic spirituality. (We are currently updating our inventory – please call or send an email for purchase inquiries). After every Sunday Mass we invite you to visit our gift shop on the lower level of the church.
