Glastonbury Abbey is an independent monastery that exists on its own, through the generous support of our friends. We rely on your support to continue our mission of prayer and hospitality.

Support Our Spiritual Enrichment Programs

These programs are offered by the Glastonbury Abbey Institute and Listening to Other Voices interfaith lecture series, which is an extension of the rich Benedictine monastic teaching tradition found at the Abbey. As a spiritual resource for lifelong learning, we invite all people from diverse faith and cultural traditions to explore and deepen their faith and knowledge. Programs are offered free but donations gratefully received. Click here to donate to our Spiritual Enrichment Programs.
