Prayer

Hospitality

Manual Labor

Simplicity

Solitude

Welcome!  For over 900 years, Cistercian abbeys around the world are oases of prayer, work, beauty, silence and light - a place to dwell and delve deeper to the heart of Christ.  For us who make the Abbey of Our Lady of New Clairvaux our home, we invite you to come away a while and share in this oasis and we pray you carry with you that beauty, serenity and light you experience here back into our world.

Welcome to New Clairvaux
