The Monastery of Chevetogne is situated in a tiny Belgian village of the same name, between Brussels and Luxembourg. Chevetogne is an international Benedictine monastery, devoted to the unity of Christians.

 The monastery is primarily a centre of prayer, and is occupied by male religious of the Byzantine-slav community as well as monks of a Latin Benedictine community, sharing in each others liturgies with both communities under the same abbot.


The community is ‘bi-ritual’, in that two distinct groups of monks celebrate the monastic office respectively in the Roman and Byzantine-Slavic traditions. Men only can stay within the monastery itself and women and mixed groups have a choice of accommodation in two separate guesthouses situated on the property.
