The little monasteries
of the Lamb
Lights of the Gospel
in the heart of the world
Little, low houses, conforming to the Gospel in every way, radiating the humility and poverty of Our Lord Jesus Christ, designed simply and modestly, with a central chapel open to all.
The vocation of a little monastery of the Lamb is to be a place where the Love of God can shine through, where we are called to go from darkness to light, to live in peace and brotherly love.
Built in the heart of cities or in the solitude of the countryside, the little monasteries are a place of monastic life, of prayer and of silence for the Community, a place of formation for the little brothers and little sisters, where each is nourished by the Word of God.
The little monasteries are also, for all those who pass by, a break along the road, a place where one is welcome: a source of living water, so that all together, rich and poor, we can come to know the joy of the Gospel.

A land for God
Twenty years ago, we received a piece of land in Aude, ten miles from Fanjeaux, a place of source or ‘origins’ for the Order of Preachers, where Saint Dominic spent ten years. This land, which bears the name of “Saint-Pierre” is now ‘the family home’ for the Community.
In this privileged place devoted to prayer and contemplation, we learn to live simply and poorly, abandoned to Providence, in fraternal communion, and humble, joyful service, with the work that is required for the upkeep of this large terrain.
Saint Pierre is a land for God where all pilgrims, friends, young people, families, and the poorest of our brothers can stop and come back to the source of the Gospel.
