Welcome to this window into our life here at Bethlehem Abbey, in Portglenone, on the banks of the River Bann. It is our hope that, with your visit, you will gain an insight into the daily routine and rhythm of our life and get a flavour of Cistercian Monastic Life as lived in our Community. Silence, solitude and simplicity of life leave room for a contemplative encounter with God – so join us, even for a moment, as we consecrate our days in prayer and work.

In Christ’s peace.
