Mass, Adoration & Benediction

The beautiful culmination of AbbeyFest is a large outdoor afternoon Mass and solemn evening candlelight Eucharistic procession, Adoration and Benediction. We have been blessed since 2021 to have Archbishop Nelson Perez as our principal celebrant and he will return again this year!

AbbeyFest grounds are transformed each year!

Our annual AbbeyFest is held at Daylesford Abbey in Paoli, PA.  The 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 Archdiocesan, Norbertine, and other order 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 proceeds from ticket sales, sponsorships and donations are reinvested in AbbeyFest to support the ongoing festivals, evenings of worship and AbbeyFest “On The Road” artist series.  The AbbeyFest experience is designed to celebrate our Catholic faith 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.
