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.
We are a community of Cistercian monks following the Rule of St Benedict according to the traditions of the Cistercian Order.
Our life is a community one, lived in a spirit of simplicity, silence, and solitude. The day is made up of a careful balance of prayer and work.
"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."
The Abbey Church is open from 7am to 8pm
