Since their arrival in Minnesota in 1856, the monks of Saint John’s Abbey have embodied a vital monastic presence, seeking God and witnessing to Christ and the Gospel through a common life of prayer, study, and work, in service to the Church and the world.

The Benedictine monks are and have always been the leaven of the Saint John’s community, providing invaluable support, inspiration, and leadership for Saint John’s University, School of Theology•Seminary, Preparatory School, and Liturgical Press.

Today’s monks continue to be inspired by their forebears and look forward to responding to the world’s deepest hungers for learning, for believing, and for hoping in the future. Their ongoing influence is essential to keeping Saint John’s both Benedictine and Catholic, assuring that their initiatives and their values are actively handed on to future generations.
