Welcome to the website of St. Bede Abbey, a Benedictine monastery in the Illinois Valley area of North Central Illinois.  St. Bede Abbey was established in 1891 and operates St. Bede Academy, a co-educational Catholic high school serving both day and boarding students.  We hope that you will find the website helpful.  If you have further questions, then please contact us.




Beginning on Monday, August 15 until the end of the school year, Mass on Mondays will be celebrated at 7:30 AM; Mass on Tuesdays to Saturdays will be at 5:00 PM; Sunday Mass will remain at 10:00 AM.  All Masses will continue to be broadcasted live.


Our thanks for the patience of those of you who view our daily broadcasted Masses.  Our equipment failure took longer to correct than we had anticipated.  We are back on-line for the foreseeable future.
