Assumption Abbey, Richardton, is a Benedictine monastery.  Its church also serves the local Catholic community as St. Mary’s Church.

The Assumption Abbey/St. Mary’s Church was begun in 1906 and was first used for Midnight Mass in 1908.  It is Romanesque in style, built in the form of a cross.  It has 23 beautiful stained glass windows.  The 19 upper round windows each have a Christian symbol.  It also has 24 painted medallions of the apostles and other saints.  The expansive volume of its interior reminds us of the immensity of God’s love.
