a place of the Christian search for God,
of prayer and of hospitality.”
There has been a Benedictine community at Gerleve (North-Rhine-Westphalia, Germany) for over 100 years. At present the community has 40 members. Our church is open daily between 5.15 a.m. and 8.45 p.m., but closed on wednesday 10.00 – 12.00 h. Many people visit Gerleve to share in our liturgy, to listen to the Gregorian chant, to pray with us, and to seek the presence of God. The old tradition of Benedictine hospitality is very much alive in the guesthouses at Gerleve.
