On October 13, 2019, the monks of the Abbey of New Clairvaux had the honor of hosting the Abbot General of the Cistercian Order (O.Cist) for Sunday Eucharist and afternoon fellowship. Abbot General Dom Mauro Lepori arrived to Sacramento in order to install newly appointed Father Dominic Tran, O.Cist as abbot of Cistercian monastery of Chau Son in Sacramento on Saturday, October 12th. Dom Mauro took the opportunity to visit the Abbey of New Clairvaux the next day and tour the completed 12th-century Cistercian Chapter House that serves as our new permanent abbey church.
