Founded in 2012 in Stamullen, Co. Meath, Ireland, and canonically erected in 2017, Silverstream Priory is the home of the Benedictine Monks of Perpetual Adoration of the Most Holy Sacrament.
They are the first monks to adopt the charism of the great 17th century French Benedictine mystic, Mother Catherine-Mectilde de Bar (†1698).
Living under the influential sixth-century Rule of St Benedict, they devote themselves, before all things, to the worthy celebration of the Sacred Liturgy, in its age-old classical forms; and, as Benedictines of Perpetual Adoration, they aspire to assure ceaseless prayer before the Eucharistic Face of Christ in a spirit of reparation.
Praying and working in the enclosure of the monastery, the monks of Silverstream offer their life for the sanctification of priests labouring in the vineyard of the Lord. They undertake various works compatible with their monastic vocation, notably hospitality to the clergy in need of a spiritual respite, and a publishing house, the Cenacle Press.
The monks also maintain the Confraternity of Priest Adorers, the Confraternity of Jesus King of Love, and (3) The Benedictine Eucharistic Guild (enrolments of loved ones, living and departed, for remembrance at Holy Mass once a week).
