The Abbey Church was completed in 1948 (abbey was founded in 1889) and the church has one of the largest carvings based on the Shroud of Turin.
You may pray or read in the church whenever the church is open even if the monks are not there.
The abbey church is a good place to sit in silence. Silence is a good place for lectio divina.
The monks do lectio divina Monday through Friday at about 11:20 am (before Midday Prayer) and 4:20 pm (before Vespers).
The picture at the bottom of this page is of the lectio divina wall in the abbey church. Saint Leo Abbey may be one of the few churches or monasteries with such a prominent wall dedicated to lectio divina.
Here are links to lectio divina web pages from several Catholic religious groups or Orders and Abbot Isaac's description of lectio divina on the wall shown in the above picture. Lectio divina is pronounced:
THE LECTIO DIVINA WALL AT THE
SAINT LEO ABBEY CHURCH
The carvings are by Brother Paul and represent the four Gospels.
