How to Succeed Logo



From the authors of "Guys and Dolls" comes one of the most delightfully irreverent musicals of all time. A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant "company man," the office party, backstabbing co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love.

Auditions  will take place on Sunday, November 9th at 4:00 pm in the Kevin Kline Theatre.

Easter 2014

Christ is Risen! He is Risen indeed!

This is the clarion call of the Church throughout the centuries, as we celebrate again the great mystery of our Redemption in the Paschal Mystery of the suffering, death and Resurrection of Jesus. God, in Christ, has triumphed over the power of sin and death, and brought us into  the kingdom of His Son.

Our prayer is that all of you in the Abbey family may know the power of that grace in your lives this Easter.

With many blessings,

The monks of Saint Louis Abbey

Loving and gracious God, 

In this season of celebration, 

We thank you for the gift of your Son, 

Whose Passion, Death and Resurrection

Have freed us from from the snares of death

And brought us into the Kingdom 

Which you have prepared for us from the foundation of the world.


As we renew our faith in the Risen Lord this Easter

Help us to strive ever more fully

To live as He taught us

To love one another with His selfless love

And to witness to the power of the Spirit at work in the world,

Now and every day of our lives.
