Pax, again,
i am wondering if someone( or someones.. :rolleyes: ) down there, could please make me a list , or contribute to a list,of MENS Communities that follow the[u] Rule of St. Benedict [/u] and [u]do not[/u] have any external Apostolates , ie. Parish/School, active foreign Missions. ( Besides the Abbey at Clear Creek)
will be helpful for my project.

as well, a listing of MENS Communities of any Rule, who also do not have any External Apostolate, (Besides the Carmelite Monks in Wyoming).
all [u]only in the USA[/u], and only the Title and Town/region, no need for big addresses. and only Latin Rite
THANKs ALLOT! Edited by EJames2

Try the houses of the Solesmes and Subiaco (I'm thinking of Pluscarden) congregations.

The EBC is heavily influenced by virtue of its history and thus for them it's very normal to have apostolates outside the enclosure. From what I understand this is not the norm amongst the majority of Benedictine congregations and houses.

How about Christ in the Desert, Br. Bruno's monastery?
Or the monastery in Norcia?

You can also use the [url="http://atlas.osb-international.info/atlas/geo/WORLD/NameCat/1/en.html"]Benedictine Atlas Online[/url] to help.

Thank-you, for reminding me of Christ in the Desert... the OSB Atlas sometimes isnt very clear especially regarding the USA, and i was hoping to discover some that are not well known, especially online, from some Phatmassers, perhaps those who follow the Rule, but are not 'officially' Benedictines...as well, i have discovered, a Congregations name isnt always the thing, and can be much variation within a particular Congregation ,because in France, for example, a large Subiaco Congregation Abbey has some weird external apostolats, and i know of a Swiss American Cong. Abbey with none.
also, Norcia (whom i am friendly with) has an Apostolate, besides the Basilica of St Benedict, of a pastoral parochial presnece in St. Eutizio.(and a bit of teaching in Roma.)

Laudem Gloriae
How about the Cistercian Monks of the Abbey of Our Lady of Spring bank at [url="http://www.monksonline.org/"]http://www.monksonline.org/[/url] ? Also known as the "laser monks" with this site [url="http://www.lasermonks.com/"]http://www.lasermonks.com/[/url] .

I remember seeing a 15 min vocation video on them shown on EWTN years ago and thought they were a beautiful order. But that's all I remember or know of them.

St. Mary's Monastery, Petersham MA [url="http://www.stmarysmonastery.org/"]http://www.stmarysmonastery.org/[/url]
The monks here are the twin community to St. Scholastica's Priory and they (the monks) are daughter house of Pluscarden Abbey, Scotland. They belong to the English Province of the Subiaco Congregation and do not have an outside apostolate.

Domine ut Videam
St. Benedict's Abbey in Atchison, KS. They have active apostalates in being pastors, teacher at the college, and many other things.

Personally, I can attest to their phatness :smokey: , these are some cool dudes.

Mount Saviour Monastery - Pine City, New York - they never had an external apostolate. This is the founding monastery of Christ in the Desert. Weston Priory - Weston, Vermont - they also don't have an external apostolate. Edited by genesisweavers

Of course the trappists have no apostolates, but the Camaldolese in eastern Ohio are hermits and are very orthodox. They were founded around 1000 and follow the rule of St. Benedict. I think their website is www.camaldolese.net

Monastery of the Holy Cross - a dependant house of Christ in the Desert
no email address listed in the Benedictine year book but
address -3111 South Aberdeen Street, Chicago, Illinois 60808-6503

there is also an Anglican one but I don't think you want that do you?

You could also try - Cistercians - New Mellaray Abbey,
6500 Melleray Circle, Peosta, Iowa,52068

the Benedictine Confederation www.osb-international.info can probably help you too
