Conception Abbey: A Benedictine Monastery
“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. We exist to praise God in our daily cycle of prayer and work, welcome guests, educate future priests, and share the Gospel. Learn more about us and know you are always welcome at Conception Abbey.
Brothers Living in Unity campaign receives challenge grant
Conception leadership is pleased to announce that, with the help of our generous donors, we have met the Mabee Challenge to receive an additional $1 million grant from the J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation toward the Brothers Living in Unity campaign. With this generous grant, Conception has now secured more than $13.6 million in gifts and pledges toward our $14.5 million goal to fund a new seminary residence hall and fund the monastic retirement endowment.
Having met the challenge by the deadline, Conception has now raised sufficient funds to begin construction of our new seminary residence hall, Good Shepherd Hall, which will begin in the Spring of 2021.
