Construction continues at Nový Dvůr
Alongside the repeating daily cycle of services and private prayer, the monastic day stipulates time dedicated to manual work. At Nový Dvůr, this work includes the manufacture of hand cream and the packaging of mustard, the sale of which should generate sufficient income to cover the monastery’s day-to-day running costs. Construction of the workshops designed to house these small-scale industrial activities, located on falling ground east of the main cloister, is scheduled to conclude by the end of the year.
