Thank you for an amazing day!

AbbeyFest 2023 has come to a conclusion, but we know that the Holy Spirit will be producing great fruit in the time to come as a result of this beautiful encounter with Christ!

The day was perfectly sunny; our artists brought energy and used their God-given gifts to entertain and minister to us all; our volunteers worked tirelessly to make this day memorable for all; our food trucks served delicious fare; our religious vendors brought Catholic ministries, information and beautiful works for all to enjoy; Archbishop Perez celebrated a gorgeous Mass… heaven on earth; all of our priests who heard confessions and concelebrated the Mass were enabling graces to flow; the Bishop Shanahan students gave so much of their time and talents; our attendees, youth groups, families, youth, religious and all were able to enjoy the Abbey hospitality! What a day!

Please keep an eye out to our website and social media for the 2024 date and information. To God be praised and glorified!

Thank you to ShalomWorld, our event partner, for their services and the international livestream! To watch AbbeyFest again, visit our facebook page “Abbey Faith & Music Festival”.

What is AbbeyFest?

Watch & see…



The beautiful culmination of AbbeyFest is a large outdoor afternoon Mass and solemn evening candlelight Eucharistic procession, Adoration and Benediction. In 2021, we were blessed to have Archbishop Nelson Perez as our principal celebrant and he promises to be back!


“The sacred silence on this field of human beings within prayer is heavenly in the candlelight. Thank you Jesus.”
