A new building stage

Since we arrived at Munkeby, we have lived in an interim monastery with a small chapel. We now think that the time is ripe to move forward with the establishment of the monastery.

We therefore plan to build a church and a monastery facility in the continuation of the buildings that were completed in 2017 (dairy and residential part). Both the church building, the residential and work buildings will be placed around an atrium, according to the traditional monastery pattern. The church will have a capacity of about 40 visitors and the monastery facility, which is intended for up to 15 monks, will currently provide space for 9.

The preliminary project has now been completed and the costs are estimated at approx. 50 million Nok (5 million EUR).
