ABBOT AUSTIN

Abbot Austin G. Murphy, OSB, is the 10th abbot of St. Procopius Abbey. He was born in Huntington, NY, in 1974 and attended the University of Chicago, receiving a BA in Economics in 1995. Soon after graduating, he came into contact with St. Procopius Abbey and, feeling called to the monastic life there, applied and entered. His jobs before becoming abbot have included teaching math and religion as well as being campus minister at the abbey's high school, Benet Academy. He studied for the priesthood at the Dominican House of Studies in Washington, DC, receiving his MA in Theology in 2003 and his MDiv and STB from there in 2004. In 2006, he began doctoral studies at the University of Notre Dame, working in the area of patristics, especially St. Augustine's thought. On June 16, 2016 Abbot Austin successfully defended his dissertation.  He was elected abbot on June 24, 2010.

HISTORY OF THE ABBEY

St. Procopius Abbey began in 1885, when a group of Benedictine monks from St. Vincent Archabbey took over the direction of St. Procopius Parish in Chicago. While living the monastic life, the new community served the faith of Czech and Slovak immigrants by founding a high school, college, printing press, and seminary as well as by doing parish work. Operations were transferred to Lisle, outside of Chicago, in the earlier twentieth century. After much apostolic activity, the community in the 1960s refocused its energy on its educational work, as remains the case today. In 1970, the monks moved into a new monastery building and today the community consists of 20 monks.
