1958: 2 religious arrive in July.
1959: another group arrives in January.
1971: the monastery is raised to the status of semi-autonomous house. The monastery is located 5 km. from Bela Vista, a large Catholic mission in the diocese of Nova Lisboa, 15 km. from the railway linking the former Belgian Congo to the sea by way of Angola. The soil is fertile and allows for the cultivation of many different crops. The climate is temperate because of the elevation.
