Douai Abbey: The Monastery of St Edmund, King & Martyr
Published by HSK in News · 5 March 2016
» This weekend sees us with a full guesthouse, the Cottages included. In the guesthouse is a retreat being led by Fr Armand de Malleray FSSP. The numbers for this retreat are actually greater than we can accommodate, so some of the retreatants are sleeping at Cold Ash convent. In the Cottages is a group of students from the University of Reading chaplaincy. In recent weeks chaplaincy groups from Oxford University and St Mary's University, Twickenham have also been on retreat here.

» On Thursday evemning Fr Abbot returned from a few days visiting our parishes in Ormskirk and Scarisbrick, in Lancashire. On the way back he collected Fr Benjamin who had been a few days on Merseyside, and then attended a trustees' meeting at Oulton Abbey in Staffordshire.
