Community goes on retreat to 1000 year old Benedictine Abbey

The new Community will next week travel to Buckfast Abbey in Devon for its Inaugural Retreat.

The Abbey which is well known to the Holywell Community is this year celebrating its Millennium, founded as it was in 1018 by King Canute. Our Prior joined the Buckfast Community for their special celebrations last month on the Feast of St Benedict.

The Community will stay in Avila Cottage in the Abbey grounds and join the monks for their offices.



From Monday, August 20 to the Thursday no offices will be said at the Priory Church in Abergavenny.
