A monastic community is formed around a group of monks in a specific place. Our Abbey was founded in 2002 by the French abbey Notre-Dame de Sept-Fons, on the ruins of Nový Dvůr farm, near the hamlet of Dobrá Voda in the municipality of Toužim in the diocese of Plzeň. In the monastery there is a church, a guesthouse, places for training young monks, workshops, a farm, an infirmary to care for the sick and dying and a cemetery. The life we live here is simple and unencumbered. Ties are forged with neighbours, just like any other family or social group.

Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings”

(Prophet Isaiah 58:12)
