About Marmion Abbey

Marmion Abbey was named in honor of Blessed Columba Marmion OSB (1858-1923) who was renowned for his heroic virtue, sanctity of life and spiritual writings.

The Benedictine monks of St. Meinrad Abbey in southern Indiana were invited to Aurora in 1933 by the Bishop of Rockford to conduct the former Fox Valley Catholic High School for Boys on Lake Street in Aurora, which became Marmion Academy. March 21, 1947, Marmion was elevated from a dependent Priory of St. Meinrad to an independent Abbey. Marmion Abbey continues to conduct Marmion Academy, a college preparatory high school for 510 boys, and the San José Priory and Seminary in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, Central America. It also provides pastors for Annunciation Parish and St. George Byzantine Romanian Catholic Parish in Aurora, plus providing extensive pastoral assistance for parishes of the Rockford and Joliet Dioceses.

For those seeking more information on Benedictine life and the Benedictine Order, please visit contact Abbot Vincent Bataille.
