Eight hours of prayer. Eight hours of work. Eight hours of rest. This is the life of the monks at Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey, a Benedictine foundation of contemplative monks begun in 1999, located in the Ozark mountain foothills of eastern Oklahoma.
The DVD “Living the Liturgy” explores the life and history of these men and their role in the restoration of Christian culture.
This 52.5 minute documentary was produced in 2009 by David Biddle of EWTN, with some additional footage added in 2010, after Clear Creek Monastery became an Abbey and the first Abbot was elected.
Building Something Beautiful For God –
To Last A Thousand Years
Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey is a Benedictine community belonging to the Solesmes Congregation and, like other monasteries of the Solesmes Congregation, is to be counted among the institutes entirely ordered towards contemplation. It was founded in 1999 from the Abbey of Our Lady of Fontgombault in France and is located in the Diocese of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Clear Creek became an abbey in 2010 and counts 55 monks, who devote themselves to God alone in the hidden life, in silence and solitude, in constant prayer and willing penance.
After twenty years of existence, we are happy, by the grace of God, to have completed two large buildings and a sizable portion of our abbatial church. We started building the “Chapter House” to accommodate the growing number of monks and provide a Sacristy, Infirmary, classrooms and the Chapter itself. Please help us continue this arduous, but important work for the glory of God.
