The  Madonna of the corral


a place where you can quench your thirst and steady your life, St. Benedict’s Monastery is that place.


You will find here a group of very unassuming monks, whose lives, through their writings and personal contact, have deeply touched many lives, including my own.

This is the place where I go to reground myself in faith and prayer, and to be fed, nurtured, and humored by a wonderful group of men who know the meaning of both spirituality and of friendship.

Meet our new Abbot

On January 14, 2019, Fr. Charles Albanese was unanimously elected Abbot of St. Benedict’s Monastery in Snowmass, CO. He succeeds Joseph Boyle, who died on October 21, 2018, and served as spiritual father and leader of the monastic community for more than thirty-three years. Read more.

New Photovoltaic System

Under the direction of Fr. Joseph Boyle, late Abbot of St. Benedict’s, the new Photovoltaic System was conceived not only to reduce the cost for electrical energy to run the monastery operations, but in response to Pope Francis’ encyclical on the environment to help reduce the impact of carbon emissions on the environment.

Holy Cross Energy estimates that the system installed at the monastery will prevent 486,000 lbs. of CO2 from entering the atmosphere. Read more.
