Our Care for Others

A monastery is a school of charity, a place where we learn to love God with our whole heart, our whole mind, and our whole soul. This is the simple, unique goal of the monastic way of life. As Cistercian Trappist monks we dedicate our time and energy to attaining this goal. It is our vocation in the Church. We witness to the world that God is the center of our life. We believe that the closer we come to God, the more aware we become of the real needs of the world. We live our lives for those who are in need by being faithful to our vocation of helping “to restore all things in Christ.”
