After many years, the Priory finally was able to obtain a small working set of Cistercian Monastic Psalters and Antiphonals that formerly belonged to a Trappistine Community. These volumes have been given a new lease on life and have been integrated into the monastic liturgy of the Priory.

Our Lady of Seven Sorrows Priory is a semi-cloistered community. We do not have a guest-house, nor can we receive unexpected visitors, other than open attendance Sunday Mass at 8:00 a.m. from May - November.
Please call ahead to make an appointment for a visit. (207)-655-4441
One of the missions of The Servants of the Holy Family Benedictine Community is promoting unity between traditional Anglo-Catholics and Roman Catholics. We are in a unique position to do this as we both share a strong and common bond through the observance of the Holy Rule of St. Benedict, in addition to many theological tenets as well. Since its foundation in 1993, the Priory has been blessed to have established deep and long-lasting relationships with Roman Catholic Benedictine, Cistercian, and Maronite Communities. We unite through prayer and friendship in the hope that one day we may all be one and through our mutual bond in our love of Jesus Christ, share in one another's Communions.
Regular public Mass at St. Oswalds of Northumbria Oratory, the Priory Chapel:
We welcome anyone who would like to experience the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass according to the Medieval Monastic usage as is practiced here at the Priory.
