Douai Abbey: The Monastery of St Edmund, King & Martyr
Published by HSK in News · 5 August 2016
» Today the software with which this website is built decided to throw a tantrum. As a result all updates from February onwards were lost! Fr Hugh has spent all of today manually recovering what was lost. In the process, finding some silver lining to this cloud, he reduced the download size of many photos so that pages should load a little more quickly now.

» Tomorrow Fr Xavier Perrin OSB at Quarr Abbey will receive the abbatial blessing from Bishop Philip Egan. Fr Finbar has gone down to represent Douai on the happy occasion, and last night and tonight Fr Leo Maidlow Davis OSB, the prior of Downside, has been enjoying our hospitality on his own way to the Quarr celebrations.
