Trappist Monastery, Canada
Located in St. Norbert, Manitoba, Canada, and known as Our Lady of the Prairies, the Trappist Monastery was established in 1892 by five members of the Trappist Order from the Abbey of Bellefontaine, in France.
In 1978, the Trappists moved near Holland, Manitoba, to protect their secluded life. Five years later, fire damaged the building.
The monastery is a beautiful building that I visit several times a year to take photos of the play between light and shadow. It has been used for special events like the Shakespeare in the Ruins festival.
