Douai Abbey: The Monastery of St Edmund, King & Martyr
Published by HSK in News · 18 October 2017
» The community is significantly stretched at the moment, a combination of more than usual numbers of monks away at once on holiday or work, and illness. Please be patient if any requests are not answered immediately.

» Today Frs Abbot and Austin are visiting Fr Richard at his parish of Burry Port in in south-west Wales.

» At last we have more information on concerts in the abbey church, which can be found on the Concerts page.

» For some years some Dutch academics at the University of Nijmegen have been working on the catalogue of our monastery in Paris, compiled by Dom Benet Weldon. Next year it will be printed in a limited run. However, it can be delved into online thanks to their tireless efforts. You can have a look to see what our monks were reading in the 17th century by following this link. The catalaogue will be permanently linked from the Library page.
