“Guests are never lacking in a monastery (Rule of St Benedict ch 53)” –
“Visit for interest” – Hospitality, which is the way we include others in our life and liturgy, is a central characteristic of monastic life. From our secure basis in truth and tradition we are happy to welcome guests and visitors to our monastery and to be open to listen to the ideas of others.
The monks of Ealing welcome all sorts of people to stay in the house for guests. It is part of the monastery property where single and married men and women and families may stay. We are very happy to provide retreat, quiet day and holiday accommodation here. Residential and non residential guests are welcome at the sung liturgy of the hours in the Abbey Church.
Conferences and courses organised from the Study Centre, Liturgy Institute, monastery or choir often use the accommodation in the house for guests; regular courses accommodated include the Liturgy Institute Summer Schools (2011-14) and Latin Language Summer Schools (2007-14) in July and August, Centre for Integral Humanism, Diploma in Group Facilitation (2015), Monastic Musicians (each year), Benedictine Oblates and leaders and Interreligious monastic dialogue
There are other things that our guests should know. We cherish our silence and enclosure (separation from the outside world) and value your quiet presence with us.
