We very much like this place for a private individual retreat. Between 60-70 monks live in this abbey while living a life of contemplation and prayer are also involved in many different activities and programmes. The monastery receives everyone and that includes not just the various Christians, but non-believers, the non-Baptized, divorced people and people of other faiths. The monks do not organize retreats themselves but groups do come on retreat here with their own leaders.
It is a highly popular place to visit with visitors through their gates often exceeding 60,000 in a year and more than 4,000 guests are annually received too. This is a hard working community of men who extend a warm welcome and a restful, comfortable, and beautiful place in which to pray, reflect, and be at peace.
