Our Lady of Guadalupe Trappist Monastery

Founded in 1948 from Our Lady of the Valley in Pecos, New Mexico.
Moved to Oregon in 1955.

We, the monastic community of Our Lady of Guadalupe, are located in Oregon’s lush Willamette Valley. Presently, our community is comprised of 29 monks whose life experience expands over three generations. We are contemplative monks who, following the Rule of St. Benedict, live by the work of our own hands. Because of our contemplative nature, all four of our industries, bookbindery, bakery, wine warehouse, and forestry, lie within the enclosure.
It is important to us that we should be self-supporting, but our work does not dominate our life, rather it is our prayer that takes precedence. Our prayer consists of the daily Eucharist, chanting the Divine Office, private prayer, and lectio divina. For young men interested in vocational discernment, we do offer Monastic Life Retreats every other month.
