Welcome to Roosenberg Abbey!

The Roosenberg Abbey at Waasmunster is a unique place. It is both a witness to a rich tradition and a monastery open to newness.

The abbey is home to a small group of women and men gathered around a core community of Marian Sisters of St. Francis, with whom they share a communal, contemplative life.

From this center of prayer, the community hopes to make a much-needed contribution to women and men of our time, providing an attractive and welcoming space. Our guests will find here, in the midst of spectacular natural beauty, an oasis of rest and peace. They can enjoy our peaceful environment for quiet silence and meditation, for discernment, or for the strengthening of their faith and relationship with God.

The Abbey welcomes individuals and groups who seek a silent place for deepening faith and seeking God through discernment.
