Glastonbury Mass Guild

Since 1955, the Glastonbury Mass Guild has prayerfully and financially supported the monastery. The monks faithfully gather five times per day, in accordance with the ancient Rule of St. Benedict, to celebrate the presence of the Lord in our midst and to pray for the needs of humanity and the Church. When loved ones, living or deceased, are enrolled, they are included in the daily Conventual Mass*, Liturgy of the Hours**, and all the monk’s prayers and good works.

*Conventual Mass: Daily Community Mass **Liturgy of the Hours: Also known as the “Divine Office" or “Breviery “, is the official set of daily prayers by the Catholic Church recited by clergy, religious and laity and consists of psalms, hymns and readings. The Liturgy of the Hours is the basis of prayer for Christian Monasticism.
