We have been inspired and encouraged by such motivational speakers and our attendees have been encouraged to pursue their Catholic faith with passion and purpose.

Mass, Adoration & Benediction

The beautiful culmination of AbbeyFest is a large outdoor afternoon Mass and solemn evening candlelight Eucharistic procession, Adoration and Benediction. We are blessed each year to have Archbishop Nelson Perez as our principal celebrant!  Come and celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and worship Our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament.  It has always been the highlight of our event!

AbbeyFest grounds are transformed each year!

Our annual AbbeyFest is held at Daylesford Abbey in Paoli, PA.  The abbey grounds are transformed into a festival atmosphere featuring amazing music, Catholic and Christian vendors, the presence of Religious orders, food trucks, family and kid-friendly activities and games.  Also present are dozens of priests hearing confessions throughout the day and evening along with prayer and healing teams. One of the most unique aspects of AbbeyFest is its engaging atmosphere for children, teens, youth groups and families to experience the fullness of faith and truth of Jesus Christ.

Join us in our mission and experience AbbeyFest.  ​You won’t be disappointed!

AbbeyFest Ministries is a Catholic non profit 501(c)(3) run by an all-volunteer board.  All money generated through our AbbeyFest events is  returned into the ministry to provide next year’s event!

All proceeds from ticket sales, sponsorships and donations are reinvested into AbbeyFest Ministries to support the yearly festival, our Outreach Program to local high schools and other evangelization efforts.  The AbbeyFest experience is designed to celebrate our Catholic identity through faith, music and the family.

AbbeyFest has been a collaborative effort of the nonprofit AbbeyFest Ministries with St. Norbert Parish in Paoli and the nearby Daylesford Abbey which is run by the Norbertine fathers who have staffed the parish for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia since 1956.
