You have arrived at the on-line store of the Benedictine monks of Subiaco Abbey in Subiaco, Arkansas. Almost 1,500 years ago St. Benedict laid out in his Rule the basic principles that still govern the 253 Benedictine monasteries in the world. At our core, we are 40 monks who are men of prayer seeking to listen to God's will in our lives through a life that is balanced by prayer and work. We undertake many things by our work, for St. Benedict writes in chapter forty-eight of the Rule that "They are truly monks when they live by the labor of their hands, as did our fathers and the apostles." We have embarked on a new effort to take advantage of the art and skills of our monks both to support the monastery and to spread our ministry through quality religious products, “the labor of our hands.”
On the main menu you will find a little history of each of the products we have for sale. Likewise, you may purchase any of the products by clicking on the "category".
