New Norcia Benedictine Community

The Monastery


The monastery is the heart and soul of New Norcia.  From the very first years of the monastery in the 1840s, the rhythmic life of monasticism has guided the town.   

Following the Rule of St Benedict the monks of New Norcia live a life of work and prayer and all are welcome to join the monks at prayer

New Norcia is also a parish and Mass is held Monday to Saturday at 7.30am and on Sundays at 9am.
