Ritual: The monks of Ealing Abbey value the careful attention given to the external dimensions of catholic worship, and these are some of the ways in which all members of the assembly may participate fully and profoundly in the mystery of Christian worship.

We use many ritual books and resources for our liturgies:
Ritual of the English Benedictine Congregation
Rituale Monasticum
Rituale Romanum.

Master of Ceremonies – Dom Ambrose McCambridge (from 1 October 2012)

The proper understanding of ritual as a symbolic dimension of our participation in the mystery of Christian worship is essential if any descent into rubricism or legalism is to be avoided. Such a clear understanding is needed for presiders at the liturgy as well as members of the assembly
