Mount St Bernard's Abbey

Mount St Bernard Abbey :: SK4616
Mount Saint Bernard Abbey is situated in Charnwood Forest, Leicestershire. An area of particular natural beauty in the very heart of England: 3 miles from Coalville, 6 miles from Loughborough, and 12 miles from Leicester.

The Cistercian Order is a monastic institute, wholly ordered to contemplation. The monks dedicate themselves to the worship of God in a hidden life within the monastery under the Rule of St Benedict. They lead a monastic way of life in solitude and silence, and in assiduous prayer and joyful penitence as defined in these Constitutions, thus rendering to the divine majesty a service that is at once humble and noble.
