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.

holy mass and divine office prayed in private

Following the directives from the Diocese of Sacramento, the celebration of Holy Mass and Divine Office (Liturgy of the Hours) will be celebrated by the monks privately.  There will be no public celebration of weekday and Sunday Mass at this time due to current public health emergency until further notice.

May Our Lady of New Clairvaux, Queen and guardian of this Cistercian abbey, stand together with us in the shadow of her Son’s cross so that we might come to know the joy of His glorious resurrection.  May her tender intercession bring healing to all who are afflicted, eternal rest to those who have died, and comfort to all those who mourn. May her maternal affection cause us not to lose hope but to hunger more deeply for the Bread of Life and thirst more longingly for the Chalice of Salvation.
