Daylesford Abbey is a Norbertine (or Premonstratensian) Catholic Christian monastery and seminary in Paoli, Pennsylvania. It was originally founded in 1954 as the Daylesford Priory at the former Alexander Cassatt Estate in Daylesford, Pennsylvania. The Priory moved to Paoli in 1963 where a new building had been constructed. A 700-seat adjoining church was added in 1966. The priory was raised to the status of an Abbey in 1971 and is headed by either an Abbott or a Prior, who serves a six-year term. In 1997, the Abbey oversaw 28 member priests, of whom 10 lived at the Abbey.[1]
