Mount Angel Abbey Reviews
Any lover of Bach should make an effort to attend the Bach Festival, held each summer at the Abbey. The monks are very hospitable and run the festival like a well-oiled machine. The food that is serve... more »
This was our first time at the Bach festival, and we booked for next year before the first day was over. And we plan to go back agin before then The setting is perfect, perched above fertile Oregon fa... more »
The Benedictines are noted for their hospitality and their "prayer and work" motto. I am always moved by the monks chanting the Psalms in the Abbey church; anyone, of any faith can watch or participat... more »
The Deacon and his wife from Saint Helen's dropped me off here for part of the day. They have a museum filled with beautiful taxidermed animals. I took pictures of the animals on my phone to show people. It was the highlight of the whole trip. They have a room where people can drink free coffee. There is a sanctuary open frequently where people can pray privately or attend services. There is a bell that rings 5 times per day for services. There is a library 3 or 4 stories high full of books. They are all books on religion and philosophy. I just wasn't in the mood to do any reading that day. There is a store that sells Catholic CD's and books. None of the monks seemed interested in talking to me. I got one monk to engage in conversation with me but that was it. There is a gym but they keep it locked. I got so board that I went down to the graveyard and started talking to the dead people. There are a lot of monks burried there. This monastery is also a college, so there are certain buildings off limits to guests. I know I was trespassing but I went into one of the forbidden buildings and found a satellite dish on top of the roof. They're hiding cable T.V. somewhere!!!!!! My apologies to any monks reading this but nobody would pay any attention to me.
A wonderful, wonderful place for escaping society and finding balance. The brothers are kind & welcoming, the grounds are well kept, and the library is quite an experience. Worth the drive out for sure.
Beautiful and peaceful place for an afternoon stroll or a retreat. The place to go when the world hets too noisy
Great visitors center and great for all ages and faiths
Great visit. Was here in 1964. It's changed and it hasn't changed. :)
