Abbot Martin ShippleeA word of welcome from Abbot Martin Shipperlee,

“For some people, the idea of a monastery in the suburbs in London must seem a contradiction in terms. Yet, among the roofs of suburban West London the Abbey Church of St Benedict’s, Ealing, still raises her stately head. The monastic community too, despite recent challenges, continues to be a witness to God’s abiding love and concern to the people of Ealing and beyond. On these pages I hope that you will find encouragement in the history of the monastic community at St Benedict’s Abbey, Ealing and, with great faith, hope and trust, look with us to the future.”
