The Order of Saint Paul the First Hermit, also known as Pauline Fathers and Brothers, are spiritual sons of Saint Paul of Thebes, who is considered to be the first known hermit in the Christian tradition. Blessed Eusebius of Esztergom established our community in the first half of the 13 th century when he brought together hermits scattered throughout the woods of Hungary.
Today the Pauline Order is a semi-contemplative religious community, which means that every monk cherishes the contemplation of God in prayer, in solitude, and in a community and connects it with pastoral work. The Pauline Fathers are especially known for working at numerous Marian shrines throughout the world and fostering a devotion to the Mother of God.
The construction was originally projected as a church in a brutalist style, but it newer been consecrated, now becoming a pilgrimage house.
