Welcome to our website !

We are Benedictine monks who live according to the Rule of Saint Benedict (480-547AD).

Our motto « Ora et labora ; pray and work » invites us to worship God and to work within the setting of our life in common.

Hospitality is also a major part of our ministry. We welcome at the St. Martin Gueshouse each year about a thousand of people. Over the years, buildings have become obsolete, which implies a general renovation to accommodate guests in better conditions.

If you're interest in works, you could see www.jesoutienskergonan.com.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Abbey !
