Kopua Cistercian Associates

Cistercians are members of the Benedictine Family who seek to “live the gospel according to Saint Benedict” every day. His rule has assisted us to develop a deepening balance in our lives between:

work and recreation,

activity and prayer,

within our contemporary world.

Kopua – The Place

Cistercians have a special bond with the environment in which they live. Associates also seek to be lovers of their families and the place in which they live but also of the monastery at Kopua. It is a special place with a rich history.

Associate Life

Life outside monastic walls can be a richly balanced lifestyle of reflection and activity, work and recreation, prayer, and action.
