Through My Lens: Mission Abbey Bell Tower
Mission Abbey is located on a 200-acre site overlooking the Fraser River. Benedictine monks have lived, farmed, and prayed here since 1954.
The abbey church, tower, and seminary were designed by a Norwegian architect named Asbjørn Gåthe and were built over a period of 25 years, culminating with the church, which was dedicated in 1982.
For the Second Sunday of Lent, here is a photo of Mission Abbey’s bell tower. It was dedicated in 1958.
