Saint Joseph de Clairval Abbey

The Abbey of Saint Joseph de Clairval, located in the diocese of Dijon, France, is a community of monks living according to the Rule of Saint Benedict in obedience to the Catholic hierarchy. "By their consecrated life, the monks affirm the primacy of God and the goods of the world to come in imitation of Christ chaste, poor and obedient" (John Paul II, March 25 1996).

According to the Benedictine spirit, the liturgical life constitutes the center of the monk's day. The Abbey also organizes five-day spiritual retreats, and sells books, icons, and sculptures.
