» The community is now back on its normal timetable after its Christmas constitutional holiday. Today we welcomed Fr Edmund, who is home from Rome for a few days.
» Last week Fr Gabriel emerged from a low-speed car accident with, happily, only a few bruises and a stark reminder of human mortality. The car was not so lucky and has been written off. There may be some restriction in the community's activities for a time as we adapt to being one car down.
» On Wednesday and Thursday Fr Abbot was at Buckfast Abbey to give the community some talks in preparation for its abbatial election next Friday. Please keep the brethren there in your prayers.
» Last Tuesday the community gave the abbey church a more intense cleaning, as it does twice a year. The late Advent and Christmas period saw a significant burden on the abbey church from both monks and outside groups using it.
» A brochure with the Douai Abbey Pastoral Programme's offerings for 2017 has been added to the Pastoral Programme page on this website.
