Who are the Bethleham Abbey Cistercians Family?

The Bethlehem Abbey Cistercian Family is a community which is gathered around the monastic community of Cistercian monks which lives, works and prays at Our Lady of Bethlehem Cistercian Abbey in Portglenone, Northern Ireland. Its members are those who participate, in whatever way they can, in the spiritual tools, teachings and practices of the Cistercian monastic way, an ancient way of Christian living which expresses a contemplative living out of the Gospel. In doing so, we recognise that the wisdom of Cistercian monasticism has something to offer us all as we seek Christ sincerely through prayer, Scripture, service of our neighbour and a deep desire to seek God in all things.
