+ Gaudium Paschale! Quod est alleluia!

The Abbot and community wish you all every blessing for the Easter feast.

During Easter lunch one of the two remaining pregnant  ewes, Bianca, gave birth to twins — John and Magdalene. While Fr Hugh tended to them, the seven other lambs were enjoying their first taste of full community; the younger ones had been kept separate to minimize disruption to their maternal bonding process.
