Monastery Info

Tautra Mariakloster: Tautra, Norway

Tautra Abbey or Tautra Mariakloster is the first permanent Cistercian settlement in Norway since the Reformation. It was founded in 1999, near the ruins of a medieval monastery on the island of Tautra in central Norway. Most of the founders came from Mississippi Abbey, in Dubuque, Iowa, along with two Norwegians, one from the monastery of Wrentham (USA) and one from Laval (France).The new abbey was granted autonomy on 26 May 2006. The Trappist nuns hope to be a point of contact and exchange between the Norwegian tradition and Cistercian spirituality.

St Benedict encourages nuns who live according to his Rule to earn their living by the labor of their own hands. Sr GilKrist Lavigne of Tautra had made herbal soap as a hobby at Mississippi Abbey. The nuns decided to make soap production their main industry, and are becoming well known for their fine, all-natural body care products.

  • Love it!

  • This face cream feels and smells great! It is a thick cream that absorbs and hydrates even the driest skin.

  • soothing cream

  • I am always hesitant to try new face creams because my skin is extremely sensitive and I have rosacea. This cream will be my "go to" from now on because it is light, refreshing and does not irritate my face.
