The Abbey Team

“I love working at the Abbey for soooo many reasons.  Perhaps the biggest reason I love working here is the opportunity to meet so many holy visitors—of all faiths—who are simply coming to the Abbey to step back and encounter God and their neighbor in a deeper, more purposeful way…to actively seek His peace in their lives.  In seeing that, it inspires me to do the same.”


I love visiting with the many people who have had wonderful experiences/memories of this beautiful landmark of faith.  The stories of how our guests have “rediscovered peace” are truly inspirational.  I am often overwhelmed with joy from those who truly commit to stewardship in some form of sharing their time, talent, or treasure. Whether large or small—all gifts of stewardship are so appreciated. Working in a faith-filled environment is also a blessing that I am thankful for every day.


“I visited The Abbey in September of 2020 and loved the peace and atmosphere of the grounds.  It's so beautiful here and everyone is so helpful and welcoming.  I am blessed to be a part of this great team!”


“I am very excited to be a member of the Abbey staff. I love organizing events and helping people experience the beautiful and peaceful gift of the Abbey of the Hills.”



“I enjoy the peacefulness that the Abbey offers along with a great group of co-workers that make each day fun and entertaining.”

"I love working at abbey because it is a place where you find peace and tranquility. Another of my reasons is respect and equality between co-workers, spirituality, another reason is knowing that you can help people feel comfortable and achieve your goal of finding peace and faith, another reason is knowing that we can host different groups of people for different types of events, which are growth or encounter with their faith."

“Working at the Abbey gives me the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people.  I love how everyone is so friendly.”



I first came to Blue Cloud Abbey in 1984 from Minneapolis when the Benedictine monks were here. I fell in love with the place right away. I've always wanted to live at the Abbey and have made many retreats here. When the opportunity to be Caretaker came up, I prayed about it, and felt immediately drawn to this opportunity. I feel privileged to work here in this beautiful environment, serving the community along with this wonderful staff. I am very blessed by God.



“I think the history of the Abbey is amazing.  I have only been here a couple of months and I am still trying to find all the nooks and crannies of this building. When I walk the halls and see the pictures of when the Abbey was built etc. I know God has called me to be part of this plan.”
