Visit Us

Welcome to Saint Meinrad! We’d love to have you visit us at our southern Indiana location.

You’re invited to join us any day for prayer or Mass in the Archabbey Church. If you have time, take a tour of our beautiful grounds and historic buildings.

You might even want to sign up for one of the many retreats we host in our Archabbey Guest House and Retreat Center.

However long your visit, we’re glad to offer a warm welcome. It allows us to live out the words of St. Benedict, “All guests who present themselves are to be welcomed as Christ.”


Perhaps you’re interested in learning how Scripture, prayer, Benedictine wisdom, or art can inspire your spirituality. Saint Meinrad offers a variety of monk-led retreats during the year on a variety of topics.
