PAOLI, PA — AbbeyFest, Greater Philadelphia’s premier celebration of Faith, family, friends, and contemporary Catholic/Christian music, is back. The day-long festival will include food trucks, merchandise tents, kid-friendly activities, music, Eucharistic Adoration, Confession and Holy Mass celebrated by Archbishop Nelson J. Pérez. The event will be held at Daylesford Abbey, 220 S. Valley Rd, Paoli, PA.

“One of the most unique aspects of AbbeyFest is its ability to engage children, teens, youth groups and families in an encounter with the fullness of faith and truth of Jesus Christ,” said Mark Griswold, Director of Family Life and CaFFE at St. Norbert Parish and one of the founders of AbbeyFest.


This year’s music lineup features 9-time Grammy nominee Matt Maher; Micah Tyler and his hit song ‘Walking Free’; Jordan St. Cyr; The Vigil Project Featuring Athenas; Connor Flanagan; The God’s Men under the direction of Tonya Dorsey; and the Philadelphia Catholic Gospel Mass Choir.

“Our goal is to deepen relationships with Jesus Christ and encourage families, young and old, to follow their faith with passion and purpose,” added Deacon Hank Fila, advancement director for St. Norbert Parish and AbbeyFest. “We are thrilled to welcome a lineup of renowned artists and once again welcome Archbishop Perez to AbbeyFest!”
