A Day in the Life of a Trappist Monk

Creator(s): St. Norbert Arts Centre

Spend the day in the life of a trappist monk. Experience a trappist monk's true devotion to his religion and his dedication to Christianity. A trappist monk leads a life of sacrifice, living a voluntary life of poverty and celibacy, and has chosen to act in a humble way towards the Earth's finite resources. Through God's word, trappist monks are trained in a discipline of heart and action to be responsive to the Holy Spirit. For more than 85 years, trappist monks called Our Lady of the Prairies, a monastery in St. Norbert, just outside of Winnipeg, home. They moved to Holland (Manitoba) in 1978. Discover the true meaning of what it is like to be a trappist monk.
