Newly agreed upon rules between the Italian government and the Italian Episcopal Conference, beginning May 18, do not yet offer the possibility for the chapel of the Monastero di San Benedetto in Monte to be open for the daily Conventual Mass. Small groups may still come to pray in the chapel on Sundays and other days and can get more information by contacting the Porter's Office.
The monks can be visited at the Porter's Office outside San Benedetto in Monte.
Office Hours: Monday through Saturday 9:00 to 16:00. Monks can be reached by phone at 348-393-1121.
God inscribed in human nature the days' rhythms of light and darkness and the Rule of St. Benedict orders monastic time according to the position of the Sun. Therefore, suggested times of arrival for prayer are updated below every week.
The gates are open for Conventual Mass and all Divine Offices between Terce and Compline. If you would like to attend one of the earlier offices (Matins, Lauds or Prime), please write or call ahead of time.
Confessions are available before Conventual Mass, according to the schedule below.
