Douai Abbey: The Monastery of St Edmund, King & Martyr
Published by HSK in News · 19 January 2017
» This past weekend we have had the pleasure of a visit home by Abbot Edmund, who is now at Sta Cecilia in Trastevere, in Rome.

» On Monday 16 January Abbot Cuthbert Johnson, the abbot emeritus of Quarr Abbey, passed from this life after battling a brain tumour. He was a well-known liturgist, with especial expertise on the great refounder of monastic liturgy at Solesmes, Prosper Guéranger. Requiescat in pace.

» Yesterday an abbatial election at Buckfast Abbey did not see any candidate elected to the abbacy there. Please pray for the community as they discern their way forward.
