Abbot's Circle

Will you be the next member of the Abbot's Circle?

With annual gifts of $1000 or more to the Abbey Foundation of Oregon, our generous benefactors make a powerful statement about the deep value of monastic and priestly vocations, and the Abbey's life of prayer, education and hospitality - inspiring others to follow their lead and give more generously of themselves.

The $1000 minimum gift amount includes all giving, for any purpose, during the fiscal year, from July 1 through June 30. No other giving opportunity has such a wide range of impact at the Abbey and seminary.

Abbot's Circle donations support:
  • Scholarships for promising and needy seminarians
  • Outstanding college and graduate programs
  • Training for young monks
  • Care for senior monks
  • Mount Angel Abbey Library, a beautiful and historic learning center
  • Spiritual growth and refreshment at the Retreat House
  • Renovation of the Hilltop facilities
  • Mount Angel Abbey's 130 years of service to the Church for the glory of God!
