At the Cistercian – Trappist Monastery of Our Lady of Calvary we live a peaceful life with God here in Rogersville New Brunswick and provide a spiritual retreat for men who are searching for God.
The monastic community tries to live the Canadian reality and, therefore, like the province of New Brunswick and the diocese of Moncton is officially bi-lingual. In fact, however, because we have some members who are primarily French speaking we function to some extent in French, which is the language that predominates most of our times of prayer. Specifically the Saturday Mass is normally in English and the midday office of Sext. At other celebrations the mix of the two languages varies and the Mass is frequently totally in French. Preaching on Sundays and Feast days will normally be in both languages.
This website is available in full in both languages, except that we can only manage the weekly chronicle in English.
