On 17 March 2014, the Benedictine Monks of Perpetual Adoration launched a major fundraising campaign in order to purchase the buildings and 15 acres of Silverstream Priory. Stability is an essential element of Benedictine. Until such time as the monks own Silverstream Priory, the further development of the monastic community is gravely compromised.
Prior Mark Daniel Kirby writes: “Promising young vocations are knocking at our door, but the door does not belong to us, nor does the house, nor the land. The future of Silverstream Priory is at stake. Please do something to re–establish monastic life in County Meath, not far from the Hill of Slane where Saint Patrick, long ago, kindled his Paschal Fire.”

Our Charity Status
For benefactors in the Republic of Ireland and the European Union: We are a limited liability company registered in Dublin, Ireland (CRO number 513644; Registered Charity CHY20303; Registered Office, Silverstream Priory, Stamullen, Co. Meath).
For American benefactors, we have established The Monastery of Our Lady of the Cenacle Foundation, a non-profit corporation organized under the laws of the state of Oklahoma. The Foundation is starting the process of becoming a tax exempt entity (501c3) for purposes of the Internal Revenue Service. Once the Foundation’s application to the IRS is approved, the IRS’ determination of tax exempt status should apply retroactively (back to the time of the Foundation’s organization under Oklahoma law—prior to the time of this donation).
