Support for the Abbey

As you probably know, the history of the Benedictine Abbey in Tyniec was long and turbulent, very often terrible. Devastation caused by the siege of the Confederates of Bar in 1772, and then, dissolution of the Abbey applied by Austrian authorities, in 1816. The Benedictines returned to the ruins of their former Abbey on the eve of the outbreak of World War II, in July 1939. The difficult conditions of the post-war reality made it almost impossible to conduct and complete the reconstruction works.



The rebuilding of the monastery was successfully commenced in 1947, mostly with private donators help and support. Rebuilding and reconstruction works on north-east, middle and west wings of the monastery, were conducted and finished in the 80-ies. Works in the south wing of the former library, were commenced in the middle of 90-ies, and interior arrangements were finished in 2007-2008. This was the last milestone.


It is certain, that none of these works would be possible without your help. We would like to sincerely thank all the people who supported us - financially and - what is maybe the most important - in prayers through these years.


The reconstruction works in Tyniec Abbey have been conducted until today. A lot of conservation work, basement restoration, County, founded during the excavations- all of these requires really huge financial outlays. However, life in monastery is not only rebuilding and reconstruction, it is mainly monks' everyday life: work, study, prayer, education, cultural and pastoral ministry.


We are trying to act comprehensively, spread peace and good whatever we do and promote Benedictine tradition and spirituality.


If any of you wanted to contribute to this beautiful and good work, we would like to ask you to support the Benedictine Abbey in Tyniec.
