Rorate Caeli

A cloister completed

The first phase of the main building project of the Monastery of Saint Mary of La Garde (Sainte-Marie de la Garde), the daughter-house of Sainte-Madeleine du Barroux located in Aquitaine, has been completed, with its cloister now completely enclosed - the Bishop of Agen, the local ordinary, blessed it on Sunday.

The day also included an open house, in which visitors could see the buildings of phase 1 from the inside, including the monastic cells - for the last time for most of them!

    This is in Aquitaine, France?
    There is also an Aquitaine in Boston and another in Chicago.
