A visit to the beautiful Our Lady of Dallas chapel at the Cistercian Abbey was definitely worth the stop. The architecture was great. The campus quiet and peaceful. A perfect location for a moment of quiet contemplation.

Sunday Mass at the Abby was lovely. Gregorian chant was used for all propers and prayers. Beautiful chapel modeled after an ancient European monastery chapel. Very family friendly atmosphere.
