The support group for Tautra Mariakloster has existed since before the monastery. In fact, they prayed us into existence! It is not necessary to be a Catholic to be a member. These friends have been a tremendous help with their support by prayer, work (especially selling our soap at the St Olav's market every summer) and financial contributions. In return, we host two days a year with spiritual input and sharing of Cistercian values and how they can be lived in the world. If you are interested in becoming a member, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
