After recruiting a number of local vocations, a Benedictine monk from Togo, opened a religious house in Agbang on August 6, 1985. Agbang is situated in northeastern Togo, close to the border with Benin. The community submitted a request at the General Chapter of 1988 to join the Benedictine Congregation of St Ottilien whe-reupon Agbang was accepted by the Congregation as a "new foundation on an expe-rimental basis". On November 9, 1991, the monastic character of the foundation was officially recognized by the Archabbot of St Ottilien and the community was placed directly under the Congregation. On December 21, 1992, the "Monastere de 1'Incamation d'Agbang" became a simple priory.
The Incarnation Monastery of Agbang has a study house at Kara (Diocese of Kara) which was founded on January 15, 1992.
