Jesus needs souls who listen to him in silence.

Our Lady of the Angels Monastery is a community of Trappist-Cistercian nuns. Our life is wholly ordered to contemplation. We journey together towards an ever closer personal union with Christ, through mutual care, a balanced life of prayer, work and study, according to our Cistercian tradition, in communion with the Church and in intercession for the world.

LEAVEN

We are blessed with many saints in our Benedictine-Cistercian Tradition, but many more have passed through the centuries leaving their names written only on the Book of Life and the hearts of those who met them. Their hidden offering, with that of so many good parents and faithful workers, the ordinary saints, is like the leaven in the dough—united to the sacrifice of Christ it makes of our humanity a pleasing offering to God.  On November 13th, each year we thank you, Lord, for all the saints in the Benedictine family. May they intercede for us all.
