» From tomorrow eveneing until Friday lunchtime the community will be on retreat. Most of the mission fathers will be coming in to join the resident community. Our retreat master will be Fr Paul Murray OP, an Irish Dominican who teaches at the Angelicum in Rome. During the retreat we will not be as responsive to phone calls or emails as we try to maintain an atmosphere of recollection and of a brief "retreat" from our normal activities. So please be patient if we do not answer or get straight back to you.

» Fr Edmund spent a pleasant and cheering week with us before heading off again last Thursday.

» Fr Terence has been responding very well to the care he is receiving in the Duchess of Kent Hospice. he has been able to receive a large number of visitors above and beyond the daily visit from one of the community, and though easily tired he is in good spirits. Please keep him in your prayers.
