Brides of Christ

The Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary of Saint Benedict Center is a traditional, active Order founded by Fr. Leonard Feeney and re-founded by Brother Hugh MacIsaac in 1976.
The community lives the spirit of True Devotion to Mary as described in the treatise written by Saint Louis Marie de Montfort. Consecrating themselves to Our Lady, they give her everything even the merits of all their actions without exception.
Our monastery, named after Saint Benedict, reflects our life of work and prayer. We are a Public Association of the Faithful in the Diocese of Worcester, Massachusetts.
The Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary have an unbroken history of Tridentine Liturgy, on which their prayer life is based.
Active Religious Life
Our commitment to Total Consecration enables us to embrace many apostolates to reach souls and bring them to Jesus through Mary.

The activities and various apostolates of our work are both exciting and upbeat. Visit often to find out what is new and join us in prayer for the success of our endeavors ~ All for Jesus through Mary!
