Marking the Feast Day of our Holy Father Benedict

On Monday 11th July we at the Holywell Community will be marking the Feast day of our Holy Father Benedict, as is the tradition for Benedictine Communities throughout the world that were founded on his Rule.

We will be celebrating with Lauds being said at 8.15am in the Quire of St Mary’s followed by a special Mass at 8.30am.

Post Mass, 2/3 of the community will then be off for a three day pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham where prayers will be said.  It is hoped that this will be a time of special encounter with our Lord and discovery of deepening faith and love as we travel on pilgrimage together.

Please keep us and other Benedictine Communities around the world in your prayers during this time.
