Our Lady of Joy Abbey

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Our Lady of Joy Abbey is a monastery at Tai Shui Hang (大水坑), on Lantau Island in the New Territories, Hong Kong.[1][2] It is home to a number of Roman Catholic monks of the Cistercian Order of the Strict Observance, or Trappists. It was originally named "Trappist Haven Monastery", because it was founded by monks from the Our Lady of Consolation Abbey [zh-tw] in Yangchiaping, Hsüanhwa, Chahar (now Xuanhua within Zhangjiakou, Hebei), after Our Lady of Consolation Abbey was destroyed by the Communists in 1947, and from Our Lady of Joy Abbey [zh-tw], in Chengting, Hopeh (now Zhengding, Hebei), after thirty-three of the monks were murdered and the community dispersed.[3][4]
