St Michael's Abbey is a contemplative monastery of monks of the Benedictine Order about thirty miles from London, England. The monks live the Benedictine life in its classic or 'continental' form. At the heart of our life is the solemn celebration of the liturgy, sung in Latin to Gregorian Chant.
The monks earn their living through their printing, publishing, bookbinding, farm and apiary. The Abbey Shop is an important part of the monastery's income. By choosing to buy from the Abbey Shop rather than from secular commercial enterprises, our customers help support the contemplative monastic life of the Church. When buying books please consider making the Abbey Shop your regular bookseller.
