Guadalupe Abbey

Guadalupe Abbey is located on 1,343 acres of environmentally protected forest and farmland in the wine country south-west of Portland Oregon.

Infused with a spirit of prayerful contemplation, built up by mutual support of good and holy men living Gospel values in brotherly love, the abbey was founded by Our Lady of the Valley in 1948 in Pecos New Mexico, then moved to Oregon in 1955.

Guadalupe Abbey operates a small non-denominational retreat facility for both men and women. Each of our four retreat cottages houses two retreatants — one upstairs and one downstairs — and a shared bath is located at a mid-level between floors. The cottages are set in a village arrangement near the monastery church, yet in a lovely setting amid ponds and grassy areas. Nearby paths lead through a wooded hillside of about 800 acres. Guests eat the same vegetarian meals that are served to the monks in the monastery.
