Triors Abbey

Triors Abbey (Abbaye Notre-Dame de Triors) is a Benedictine monastery situated at Châtillon-Saint-Jean in the Drôme, Rhône-Alpes, France.

It was founded in 1984 as a priory of Fontgombault Abbey in an 18th century château bequeathed to the monks for that purpose. Major building works took place from 1990. Triors was raised to the status of an independent abbey in 1994. The first abbot was Dom Hervé Courau, who continues in post. The community, as of 2008, numbers about 40.

It is part of the Solesmes Congregation of the Benedictine Confederation and as such focusses on the Tridentine Mass and Gregorian chant. As at 2008, plans are in hand to produce commercial recordings of Gregorian chants covering the entire liturgical year.
