Founded in 1924, set in peaceful 40 acres in northeast Washington, St. Anselm's is a community of brothers and priests living under the Rule of St. Benedict and an abbot, seeking God in prayer, work, study and service. Central to the monastic life are praying the Divine Office in choir and being faithful to personal prayer, “putting nothing ahead of the love of Christ.” Historically our major ministry is a high school for boys founded in 1942, now for grades six through twelve . Monks also serve in some parish work, in chaplaincies, in hospitality, and other in-house duties. For those who undertakes the monastic life, St. Benedict promises that fidelity to the conversion of life will lead to “hearts overflowing with the inexpressible delight of love.” If that appeals to you, come try it with us.
