|ad Deum qui laetificat juventutem meam|
The Abbey was founded by monks from the Abbey of Solesmes in 1889 and had at the time, 60 monks. Yet in the last years, the number of new entrants had stopped and then many monks died, then the Abbey was about to close. A similar fate in the Diocese of Arras befell the Cistercian Abbey of Belval.
Since the 7th of January there are 4 monks from the Abbey of Fontgambault in Wisque, so that they can say the traditional Office as well as support their practical concerns. The Abbey operates its own ceramic atelier (art studio).
Several new monks are expected from Fontgambault at the end of the year.
