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

Forming Men of Communion

The vision of Conception Seminary College is this: to be a stable community, seeking the will of Christ, and conforming our lives to Him. We create this intentional community in a deserted place that is a source for virtue and readying shepherds to nurture the Church.
