Douai Abbey: The Monastery of St Edmund, King & Martyr
Published by HSK in News · 30 October 2017
» This past weekend six men stayed here on a monastic experience weekend. We pray that from their number we may reap a vocation or two.

» On Saturday a weary but cheery Fr Cuthbert flew in from St Louis, Missouri. He is the advance guard of two meetings being held at Douai this week: of the congregation's novice masters and mistresses, and the congregation's Commission for Continuing Formation, established by General Chapter last July. May their work this week be frutiful.

» Tonight the EBC Continuing Formation Commission met with the resident community to explain something of their brief and to hear any input we had to offer.
