Welcome to the sisters of Grandchamp!

 

The community of Grandchamp is a monastic community and brings together sisters from different churches and various countries. Our ecumenical vocation commits us on the path of reconciliation among Christians and within the human family, and to respect the whole of creation.

Pray and work that God may reign

Throughout your day,
Let the Word of God breathe life into work and rest.
Maintain inner silence in all things
so as to dwell in Christ.
Be filled with the spirit of the beatitudes,
joy, simplicity, mercy.

A Life of Prayer

Our prayer, poor as it is, is a participation in the praise of the communion of saints in heaven and on earth, in the very prayer and intercession of Christ.

Life together

…is to live a parable of communion: in joy, simplicity and mercy, as in a dance, always moving towards.

Hospitality

“Come apart and rest awhile…”
