The first monastic sisters arrived in Grabowiec, in the north of Poland, on December 8th, 1998, welcomed by the benevolence of the metropolitan archbishop of Gdansk, Monseigeur Tadeusz Goclowski, in the midst of people who kept a living memory of the disciples of Saint Bruno who lived in Kartuzy until the 19th century. The monastery of the Très-Sainte-Viegre-au-Désert was constructed in poverty on a prairy bordered by a forest and surrounded by valleys and little lakes. In this land where the Virgin Mary is Queen, a fact to which John Paul II never ceased to bear witness, the community is composed primarily of Polish sisters who are living stones of this edifice and who manifest the Christian roots of this country.
