Why support the Monastic Order?

The Monastic Order of Seborga is a religious organisation within the Polish National Catholic Church in Monaco (Principality) in a spirit of ecumenical communion with the Italian Orthodox Church Old Eastern Autocephalous.
Supporting our religious organization allows us to foster dialogue among all Christians of the world so that they may be united in Christ.
Gathered together in Seborga, the first cistening state of Humanity, destination of many Knights, including Saint Bernard of Clairvaux and Saint John of Matha, we wish to rediscover this message of fraternal love which was taught by Christ Our Lord.
Join us and profess faith in Christ in the service and for the betterment of humanity for the preservation of our beloved planet.

Why become a monk?

Being a monk in today’s world means sharing a unique experience of living together with other brothers, but it does not oblige you to live in chastity and community.
Most of our monks are “converse”, that is, they live with their families, but they share a common life path with other brothers.
They dedicate the time they have available to volunteer with other confreres in the service of the monastic Order and its spiritual guide, Abbot Mitrate Prince of Seborga, in order to build a place of common life with full respect for Mother Earth and according to the principle of fraternal love transmitted by Jesus Christ.
If you wish to have more information, contact us and we will send you the application form to become a novice. If you want to continue on this path of true brotherly love, you can become a monk and brother of the Abbey of Seborga.

Why become a lay volunteer?

To be a lay volunteer of the Monastic Order of Seborga is to be at the disposal of the monks and their Abbot Mitrate and Prince of Seborga to support the work of ecumenical dialogue between all the Christians of the Way and to help in the work of reconstructing the former abbey state of Seborga.
You can make yourself available for community service and dedicate your free time to a specific task according to your professional and cultural abilities.
Put your life at the service of your neighbour and you will rediscover the fraternal love you have always sought in yourself.
Join us and become a lay volunteer of the Orcine Monastico de Seborga.
