After being closed to the public for more than 15 months, the Saint Meinrad Archabbey Church will again be open for Mass and prayer.

When the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in the area in March 2020, the Benedictine monks continued their commitment to daily Mass and prayer but closed the church to outside visitors. Beginning with Vespers at 5 p.m. CT on Saturday, July 3, the church will once again be open to guests.

In addition, Saturday morning Mass at the Monte Cassino Shrine Chapel will begin on July 3. Mass time is 7 a.m. May through October, and 8 a.m. November through April. The Sunday rosary pilgrimages at Monte Cassino Shrine will resume in October and May.
