  • The way to visit these "Benedectine monks on the prairie" is to attend a mass or vesper. Call or see the website for a liturgical schedule.
  • The abbey is an architectural curiousity, and curiously placed, but it is not a tourist attraction. Visitors are reminded to be respectful of the the brothers' space and routines.
  • The courtyard is always open to the public who wish to walk or examine some of the abbey's sculptures.
