The monastic community is on retreat this week from Monday evening, 21st August, until Saturday morning, 26th August. This is a time when we try to step back from our usual day-to-day activities in the parish and our other works, focussing on our relationship with God.
For a reflection on why monks need a time of retreat, see this post.
During the retreat, the Conventual Mass is at 9.15 every morning, rather than 7 am.
At the end of the retreat, we renew our monastic vows at the Conventual Masss on Saturday 26th August.
Thank you for respecting our retreat time.
