Last night a large contingent of the Knights of Malta arrived at Douai for their annual retreat. With them is the Grand Master of the Knights of Malta, Matthew Festing. Also in residence is the leader of the retreat, Archbishop Mario Conti, emeritus of Glasgow.

Yesterday the sole ewe lamb in our flock so far this year, Delilah, died. She was the weak at birth and her passing was quick.

Fr Gabriel is at St Dominic’s College in Harrow today.

A small glitch has stopped the installation of the abbey church’s new sound system tantalizingly close to final completion. Hopefully it will be resolved today. The system was used very successfully at Mass last Sunday.
