  • I love the Abbey! The first time I visited I knew as soon as I stepped out of my car that I was on Holy Ground. I have been coming here for eight years for retreats and have experienced God's peace in a very significant way each and every time. It is a place of God's love and peace, I never want to go home when I am here and I look forward to my next visit as soon as I pull out of the parking lot. It will always be my place of comfort. Chanting the psalms with the monks is heaven to me and I can never get enough.
  • This is my third or fourth time visiting the Abbey. I have had pleasant experiences each time. This time, I visited with my mom for a relaxing day trip. The water lilies were beginning to bloom and the path was well maintained to the statues. I highly recommend doing a retreat however please note that you have to plan 2 to 3 months ahead of time.
  • An open=ended, ideal space for spiritual growth and personal reflection dependent on involvement at one’s own pace, led by competent, dedicated monks who desire for participants to bask in the real presence of God. Have been attending for 15+ years with a small group of clergy friends. Worth investing participation in a Mon-Fri, or Fri-Sunday retreat. A positive additive to my personal growth and spiritual development.
  • The monks were so nice to me when I came. I was going to sleep in my car overnight since I didn't make a reservation, but they let me have a room in the monastery because the guest house was full. Will never forget that visit. The first snow fall in winter during my visit in March, the serenity and the hospitality of the monks made it unforgettable.
  • Beautiful drive from Bardstown through the Kentucky countryside to the Abbey. We enjoyed the peaceful surroundings. Left the Gift Shop with some treasures to take home.
