Père Prieur avec son Sous-Prieur

The Father Prior (from the Latin, Prior meaning first) leads the community of monks with the assistance of the Father Under-Prior. He is responsible for the functioning of the monastery, on the spiritual and material levels, that is to say as much for the spiritual advancement of the monks as for the shared property of the monastery. He was chosen from among the community’s brothers which is why in addition to being their spiritual Father, he is also their brother.

Our community is currently made up of 15 monks. Community life offers each member the spiritual and material aid he needs to easily attain the goal of monastic life: union with Christ which is the ultimate happiness.
