Saint Benedict Abbey, Quebec


In 1912, Benedictine monks from France built a monastery overlooking lake Memphremagog in Quebec’s eastern townships. At the present day Saint Benoit du Lac Abbey, they’ve been making cheese since 1947, and more recently applesauce and hard cider from apples grown in the surrounding orchards. The resident monks go to mass 7 times daily, starting at 5 am, and do services in Gregorian chant. #quebecoriginal #easterntownships

We visited our second “church of cheese” today and it didn’t disappoint. The monks at Saint Benedict Abbey have been making cheese since 1947 in one of the most beautiful and peaceful settings. #quebecoriginal #easterntownships
