Abbot Neal Roth welcomes you

Dear friends,

On behalf of the monks of Saint Martin’s Abbey, I would like to welcome you to our website.

One of the important Benedictine virtues is hospitality. Our Abbey’s motto is: “Never turn away when someone needs your love.” Benedict insisted that all people be treated and welcomed as Christ.

Hopefully, you will see this aspect of Benedictine life reflected on our site.

It is our hope that you will explore these pages and learn something about our lives as monks at Saint Martin’s Abbey.

Sincerely,

Abbot Neal G. Roth, O.S.B.

Saint Martin's Abbey

The Benedictine Abbey of Saint Martin's, founded in Lacey, Washington in 1895 as a monastery of the American Cassinese Congregation, is a community of Roman Catholic men dedicated to providing Christian witness in the Pacific Northwest through its monastic life of prayer and work, education and service to the Church. Saint Martin's Abbey fulfills its mission through liturgical prayer and worship, through its support of Saint Martin's University and through its pastoral service to the local Church.
