Our Houses

The English Benedictine Congregation is a group of autonomous monasteries of monks and nuns following the Rule of St Benedict. The houses that exist today all draw their origins in some way from the survivors of pre-reformation Benedictine monasticism in England, and all observe the same Rule, interpreted by Constitutions particular to the Congregation. As a result, they are animated by a common spirit. Nevertheless, a monastic vocation is to a particular community – not to the Congregation – and each of the houses has its own character. You are encouraged to visit the websites of our monasteries, which can be reached by following the links below.
