Here at Saint Andrew’s Abbey, like millions of others, we have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Abbey has been shutdown since March 20.  As many of you know, we rely on the income generated by our various centers to sustain the Abbey and our monastic life.  We are currently working on bringing some of our retreats to you via Zoom, as well as livestreaming Lauds and Vespers; please visit our homepage for updates.  We are grateful for your continued generosity.  Your participation, through a donation or prayers, in this GivingTuesdayNow campaign will be most appreciated.

To all of our friends & oblates:  Stay safe and healthy… and be assured of our daily prayers for you and your loved ones.
