Who We Are
We are a monastic community, living according to the Rule of St. Benedict as interpreted by the Cisterican constitutions. Our Cistercian way emphasizes prayer, silence, solitude, community life, manual work and hospitality. Many visitors come to our monastery seeking peace and a deeper relationship with God. We sing the Liturgy of the Hours (also called the Divine Office) seven times a day in Norwegian. We try to earn our own living by producing herbal soaps and cosmetic creams. We offer this work as a prayer for peace.
