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

EASTER GREETINGS

What words can convey the graced joy and hope this Paschal season holds as all Christians celebrate the mystery of the passion, death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The new life that transforms our sinful selves, our fallen world, and the darkness that threatens society provides hope that love conquers all in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Paschal peace from the monks of New Clairvaux.
