David Orr elected Prior.

The Monastery’s

50th Annual Country Fair

will be held on

Sunday the 8th of March 2015.

The Fair has been organised with friends of the Monastery and the proceeds have been used for development projects in India, Sri Lanka, and now the Philippines and the Democratic Republic of the Congo where the monks have made recent foundations.

The projects over the years have included housing, schools, clean water supplies and many others.

So, come and join us in our beautiful rural setting in the Hills district North West of Sydney, conscious of the needs of real communities in developing countries, in a way that guarantees the funds raised get to where they are needed.



Benedictine Oblates

The Order provides for two possibilities:  Live-in Oblates and Oblates attached to the community who reside elsewhere. The program for each is currently under development. To register your interest contact the Prior, Fr Bernard.

 Christian Meditation

“Be still and know that I am God.”  

This day of prayer provides an opportunity to participate in the age old tradition of Christian Meditation.  Based on the Mantra tradition, made known by the work of John Main, this day is suitable for both the beginner and those already familiar with this style of meditation.  

For further information please contact  Fr Michael Kelly

The Christian Meditation day held at the Monastery on the third Sunday of every third month beginning February, 10.30am-3.30pm.
