Pais

In September 1971, the abbess of Vitorchiano and the father immediate went to Argentina.
A site was chosen and a little later purchased, once the authorization was obtained from the authorities of the Order.
The monastery of Azul took charge of the first constructions and on 7 January the first four founders embarked at Gênes (1973). Some days earlier, 26 December 1972, the founders, numbering ten, had been presented to His Holiness Paul VI by the abbot general. The second group of founders left in March 1973.
Arriving at Buenos Aires 20 January, the founders stayed several days at Azul and took possession of Hinojo 5 February 1973.
The property comprised 35 acres. To support itself the monastery counted on the gathering of honey and an offset press.
A projected foundation in Cuba had to be abandoned, because the Cuban government would not give permission, so the community opted to make a foundation in Nicaragua (2001)
