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.




Due to the outdoor Mass celebrated in association with Bruin Family Fest, the monastery is cancelling its usual 10 AM Sunday Mass on October 2.  We will not be broadcasting on that day.
