Caldey Monastery.

Caldey Monastery.
The present monks of Caldey
are Cistercians, a stricter
contemplative offshoot
of the Benedictine Order.
A group of monks came from
Scourmont Abbey, Chimay, 
Belgium in 1929 establishing
what is known as a “daughter house”.
In acknowledgement of their
Celtic predecessors, they adopted
St Samson, an early abbot of
Caldey, as their patron saint and rededicated the monastery as the Abbey of Our Lady and St Samson. Their new foundation also received the strong Cistercian tradition which had existed in Wales before the Reformation.
