Conception Abbey: 150 Years of Tradition

“So that in all things God may be glorified.” – Rule of St. Benedict

Conception Abbey is a Benedictine monastery located in northwest Missouri where all we do is dedicated to the glory of God as St. Benedict instructs in his Rule. For 150 years now, we have existed to praise God in our daily cycle of prayer and work, welcome guests, educate future priests, and share the Gospel. Learn more about our 2023 sesquicentennial anniversary.

Organ Concert by Olivier Latry

Friday, November 3, 2023
8 o'clock in the evening

As part of Conception Abbey's 150th anniversary, the monks will host Olivier Latry as he performs in the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. A titular organist of the Cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris, Latry is one of the most distinguished concert organists in the world today.

Following the event a small reception will be hosted in the dining room of St. Joseph Hall.


Due to limited seating, registration is required prior to the event. Once we have met the Basilica's capacity, we will close registration. This event will not be livestreamed.
