About Us

Is God calling you along the contemplative path through the Cistercian way?

Lay men and women in Ave Maria living the Gospel in a more radical way...a way of humility and conversion, born in the spiritual traditions of the Cistercians. 

Are you ready to rediscover and deepen the grace of your Baptism? Are you ready to be an active witness of Christ and His Church in the midst of the world?
