Welcome you

A place of welcome / Our guesthouse is closed

All those whom divine Providence leads to the monastery are received by the brothers with respect and humanity.

At the porter’s office, a brother welcomes people seeking information, those who want to celebrate a mass, or have religious objects blessed. It is also possible to ask to meet a priest for a spiritual talk or a confession.

The community is happy to share the spiritual climate of its monastic life with those who wish to do so. Our guesthouse can accommodate retreatants, individuals or small groups, for a maximum stay of 8 days. In the church, in the park or in the privacy of their room, the retreatant will taste the monastic silence “which is not a simple practice, but a grace, a gift from God”

We have some single and double rooms, with washbasins and hot water. Showers and toilets are on the floor. We ask our guests to be silent and recollected, and to be punctual for the beginning of meals, which are taken together in the refectory of the hostel. For the rest, everyone is free to do as they please, to participate in liturgical services; a library is available (Wifi point), as well as a park.

Guests are invited to contribute to the costs of their stay as far as they are able; as an indication, a full day’s board costs us about 43 euros. (29 euros for students and young people; financial participation should not be an obstacle).
