There’s A Monastery Hidden On Lake Sagatagan In Minnesota And You’ll Want To Visit

Except for those attending rural Saint John’s University, most will find Saint John’s Abbey, one Minnesota monastery among only a few, to be somewhat off the beaten path. Unless you already knew it was there, you probably wouldn’t have the good fortune to chance upon it. Now that you know, however, the good news is that you can visit and even stroll the grounds to enjoy a little peace and solitude.

While you’re visiting the area, head up to nearby Sauk Centre. It’s only about half an hour away, and you’ll find much to explore, including the boyhood home of Nobel Prize-winning writer Sinclair Lewis.

Have you visited Saint John’s Abbey or any of Minnesota’s other monasteries?

Address: St John's Abbey, 2900 Abbey Plaza, Collegeville, MN 56321, USA
