The community

Drawn together by the same call of Christ, we want to live the Gospel in the way of St Benedict at the heart of the Church, listening to the World.
Our community is made up of fifty or so sisters; one of us is elected to lead the community, she bears the name of Abbess.

Rooted in a long tradition, our Abbey of St Joseph and St Peter originated in the 19th century, thanks to the faith of Madame de Bavoz.

Our search for God involves fraternal lifemeditated prayer and reading of the word of God, work and mutual services.
