Why A Monastery in the city?


As monks in the city we are called to be a living and visible sign of the Gospel in the heart of the city.

Stability provides a rootedness which gives the monk a stability of mind and spirit, allowing him to seek God specifically in this place.



Humility allows us to detach from the self and draw closer to God through others.



Conversatio Morum is our daily commitment to grow in conformity to the monastic way of life and live according to the example of Christ.



Hospitality allows us to welcome the other. In this way we honor each individual as we would welcome Christ.


To be a monk is to live the Christian life. To love others, unconditionally, accepting them as they are.
