New Melleray Abbey is a Cistercian monastery located in the rolling hills of Dubuque, Iowa. The simplicity and transcendence of the abbey captured our imagination immediately. We were so excited to partner with the monks to create a website that would answer questions for those who might be considering a call to the monastic life.
Every day, the bells signal for the monks to come to prayer. The sound of the bells represents the quiet rhythms of monastic life. New Melleray’s logo was inspired by a sketch of the chapel's belltower.
