How you can help

The Abbaye de Cîteaux brothers need your financial support to assure that Munkeby Mariakloster will be completed and we can reestablish a male Cistercian-Trappist monastic community in Norway. The construction of the first building and the infrastructure for the chapel and monastery were completed in 2009.

Now the brothers need to raise the funds to build the chapel and the first of two planned monastery wings in coming years. We hope you will consider making a donation to help realize this 2nd of the planned 3 step construction process.
