Monasticon Praemonstratense (I, 338)
Approximate modern location: In the town of Csarnowasy, north of the city of Opole, on the river Mala Panew, in Silesia, Poland.
Elm-Number [See below]: None.*
This house remained largely intact and used as a residence for the Sisters of St. Mary Magdalene and as an orphanage until 1945.
We are most grateful to Dr. Joanna Szczesna of the Catholic University of Lublin, Poland, for the following comments: "In Czarnowasy the original buildings of this house - church as well as cloister - were entirely rebuilt in the Baroque style."
