Ampleforth monks praying Vespers in the Abbey Church

Our Monastic Community live according to the teachings of St Benedict, with their focus being to live a life of prayer, which St Benedict called “the Work of God”.

You are very welcome to join the community in praying the Divine Office together and for the daily celebration of Mass. Most of their prayer is sung.

Below is a brief explanation of each of the services which take place daily in the Abbey Church and what you can expect when you join us.
