Saint Louis Abbey
500 South Mason Road
St. Louis, MO 63141




From the airport, take I-70 West for 3 miles to I-270 South for 6 miles to I-64 (MO-40) West for 1 mile to the Mason Rd., Exit 24, the first exit after I-270. You can get to the guest wing by taking the first entrance off of Mason Road (coming from I-40), then taking the first left on our drive.


The monastery itself is sited on a north-south axis, with the church at one end and the guest wing at the other. Resident guests are invited to pass from the guest wing to the church by passing through the monastery on its east side. This takes you past the guest master’s office, a set of stairs leading to the monks’ private rooms (guests are asked to avoid the second floor altogether), the chapel, the abbot’s office, the prior’s and vocation director’s offices, various parlors, and the sacristy.
