The Benedictine Monks of Belmont Abbey
The monks of Belmont Abbey have from diverse backgrounds. Our current confreres come from several states on the East Coast and beyond. They have pursued graduate studies in fields such as Chemistry, Theology, Philosophy, History, English, Meteorology, Law and Library Information Systems. Before entering monastic life, some of the monks pursued professional careers in business, law, education, and retails sales, and several served on active duty in various branches of the Armed Forces.
What follows are the personal stories of four men who have given their lives to the Lord as Benedictine monks of Belmont Abbey.
The work and prayers here shall spread God's blessing over this beautiful country in years to come, when perhaps few of you who are listening to me now shall be among the living.
– Abbot Leo Haid
