Mount Angel Abbey is a community of Benedictine Monks founded in 1882 from the Abbey of Engelberg in Switzerland. We maintain a monastic tradition that has been a vital part of the Roman Catholic Church for more than 1500 years. Responding to God’s call to holiness and preferring nothing whatever to Christ, we dedicate ourselves, under a Rule and an abbot to a life of prayer and work. We strive to support one another in community, to serve God, the Church, and the larger society. We do this as we celebrate the Holy Eucharist together, pray the Liturgy of the Hours five times daily in choir, and devote ourselves to reading and silence.
Hopefully you will enjoy a walk down the aisle and a peek behind the side walls.

After starting the panorama, we do not have auto rotate enabled as we believe it’s more of an adventure to scroll around on your own. Just click and drag with the mouse.

You can zoom in and out to enjoy the detail and resolution provided in two of the screens. To view the Church from different perspectives. select from the stacked images in the lower left hand corner, click on them.

14 Mosaics are found in the Seminary Chapel, Louisa Jenkins was commissioned to design and build the mosaics depicting the ‘Way Of The Cross’
As you travel through the Church you are surrounded by beauty, from the statue of St Benedict to painting, carvings and the grandeur of the pipe organs. This is just a sampling of what is to be discovered and enjoyed while visiting this most serene place. Nothing we have recorded can take the place of a visit or stay at the retreat. If that is not possible then please visit their web site (address is in the about tab). By far one of the nicest and most complete sites we have come across on the web.
