Visit by Monks from Mucknell Abbey

It was good to spend May Bank Holiday Monday hosting a visit by the Abbot and four monks from Mucknell Abbey. Sadly Sr Jenni was to ill to help us host.

Among the monks was Br Adrian who joined the Abbey after a period of time in the Holywell Community.

One of the Monks Br Michael wrote an Icon of St Benedict for us to place in the newly named St Benedict Chapel at St Mary’s Priory.

Following a tour of the Priory we had Tea together. The Monks then gave a Question & Answer session on life under the Rule for interested local people, before we sung Vespers together.
