The “Magnificat” Convent of Westmalle is the only convent of the order in Belgium.  It came into existence by the merger of the three Flemish convents still surviving in 1965: Tirlemont (1629) – Geel (1853) – and Merksem (1898).


A new building was constructed in 1970 in the middle of pine forest far from noise.  There, nature itself calls for prayer, rest and meditation. 

The nuns live there following the Marial rule of Saint Jeanne of France.

 

 
 

 

In the guest quarters there is a welcome for people who need peace and quiet, prayer and spiritual resource.


Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament takes place on the eve of the first Friday of each month from 7.30 p.m. till 8.30 p.m. followed by compline.
