Oblates

Oblates are men and women who wish to live their lives in the spirit of the Rule of St Benedict, in fellowship with the monks of our community and with each other.

Oblates make a serious lifetime commitment to live a simple rule of life, but by that life commitment they are able to experience the joy and peace of being members of our monastic family. There are regular Oblates meetings, and the Oblates are seeking to develop among themselves a greater sense of community of prayer and fellowship.

To be an Oblate is a serious step, but it is one that can bring great joy in the Lord.

Welcome to the Abbey of Our Lady of Quarr, a monastery on the Isle of Wight, just off the south coast of England. It is home to a small group of Benedictine monks who strive to dedicate their lives to the glory of God, and whose day is characterised by prayer, work and community life.

Quarr Abbey is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Visitors are welcome to attend worship in the Abbey Church. You can visit our gardens, take refreshment in our Tea Shop and find out about the monastery in our Visitor Centre. The Farm Shop offers home grown produce and the Monastery Shop religious articles, books and souvenirs. There is a new exhibition of the work of local artists every week in the gallery.
