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.

Conception Seminary College

Conception Seminary College provides a unique setting for men discerning the call to Holy Orders to pursue their liberal arts education. Following the model of Jesus Christ, formation and conversion of heart are nurtured in the intimacy of community and deepened by the discipline of prayer in the Benedictine tradition.
