Four years before the Solemn Definition of the Dogma of the Immaculate Conception in 1854, Dom Gueranger published his monumental work, Memoire sur la Question de l’Immaculae Conception de la Tris Sainte Vierge. With characteristic zeal and his outstanding sensus Ecclesiae, he wished to share an enthusiasm and conviction which had been his since his seminary days. This first ever English translation of the work is published as a collaboration between the Benedictine nuns of St Cecilia’s Abbey, Ryde, and the monks of St Michael’s Abbey, Farnborough, to mark both the 150th anniversary of the solemn proclamation of the dogma and the bi-centenary of the birth of Dom Gueranger.
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.
