Abbey

An abbey is a type of monastery used by members of a [URL=/help/org?type=morder]religious order[/URL] under the governance of an abbot or abbess. Abbeys provide a complex of buildings and land for religious activities, work, and housing. Abbeys are often self-sufficient while using any abundance of produce or skill to provide care to the poor and needy, refuge to the persecuted, or education to the young. Some abbeys offer accommodation to people who are seeking spiritual retreat.
