The Glenstal family extends far beyond the cloisters of our monastery. A vast network of regular visitors, friends, former students and benefactors support and make our monastic life possible here.

We are deeply grateful for the all support we have received, and continue to receive, since those first pioneering monks arrived here in 1927 from Maredsous Abbey in Belgium. Each day our friends, relatives and benefactors are remembered in prayer by the community as we thank God for their generosity and support.

In these pages visitors can support the life of Glenstal Abbey by purchasing monastic produce in our online shop, making a donation, supporting our development programme, or exploring the Garden Cemetery initiative.
