The historic Relic Chapel at our Clyde, Missouri, Monastery is once again open to visitors!
Visiting hours are 8:30 – 11: 45 a.m. and 1:30 – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Hours on the weekend will vary.
The Relic Chapel houses one of those most extensive collection of saints’ relics and artifacts in the United States. Among the more than 500 items on display is the remains of St. Beatrice, a 13-year-old martyr from the early Roman Christian centuries.
Many of the exhibits in the Relic Chapel were gifts from European monasteries in gratitude for the Benedictine Sisters’ financial support, which helped rebuild communities destroyed during World War I.
We suggest people call (660) 944-2221 before visiting to make sure the chapel will be open during their anticipated visit as times may vary due to prayer and holiday schedules.
