Published by in News · 31 March 2020
» At 1.15pm today our Fr Louis O'Dwyer OSB passed away, aged 84. His health recently had not been good. Funeral arrangements are yet to be determined, though given the current restrictions the funeral is likely to be confined to the monastic community only. May he rest in peace.

» For those who might be struggling spiritually with the restrictions on the life of the Church in place at present, and those who might wish for some guidance in how to make the most of the opportunities they offer us, the resources and helps at Alone Together. It is led by Fr Christopher Jamison OSB, the Abbot President of the English Benedictines, and a good deal of it was filmed at Douai. Please share the link with any you think may find it helpful.
