Welcome to the website of MONOS, a charitable organisation that through education and community seeks to foster a Monastic Spirit within Society.

Our home is the Mercian Centre, located at the heart of the National Forest in Leicestershire.  Sitting adjacent to Mount St. Bernards Abbey, a Cistercian Monastery, amidst the beautiful Charnwood Forest.

We are a group of people flung together seeking to love and serve our wider community through hospitality, education and resources, creativity and arts, pilgrimage and retreats.  We look forward to welcoming you...
