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.

Three pillars support our life together:

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…”

Pray in communion with us
