The Carthusian Order

Typical day of a carthusian nun

For you, to whom our life poses a question, we are going to describe what we do day after day.
The pictures will show you the places where we live.
We will try to explain to you something about why we have chosen this life.
But, fundamentally, the choice is a response to a call from God. And why God has called us is his secret alone.
