The Holywell Community year starts on Sunday August 11th. Having said the offices of Lauds and Sext privately, the year formally starts with a Sung Eucharist at 3.30pm at which the Archbishop of Wales will be the Celebrant.
Prior to making their promises before the Archbishop members of the Community will hear a portion of the Rule read to them by the Prior.
The Communion Motet will be Trust in the Lord words from the Book of Proverbs set to music by Tim Pratt, Director of Music at the Priory, for our Prior’s Collation Service here on Epiphany 2012.
A good friend of the Community the First Abbot of Mucknell, Rt Revd Br Stuart OSB will be the preacher.
Among the guests expected at this service are families of the Community Members, the Archdeacon of Monmouth, other Diocesan clergy and Sisters from the Ty Mawr Convent.
It is customary for the Community Year to commence on a Sunday near the Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Patron Saint of the Priory Church.
