Manual work has always been an important part of monastic life.


It is an authentic witness to the vow of poverty and provides a healthy balance for an intense spiritual life. All share in the common household and gardening tasks, and also in the work by which we help to support ourselves (including printing, sewing and various forms of hand-crafts).
