The Works of the Monastery...

The work of God in the monastery is centred on the Divine Office or the Liturgy of the Hours, those set times throughout the day when our community comes together for prayer recited or sung in choir in the Abbey Church.

In his Rule Saint Benedict wrote that any guest 'should be received just as we would receive Christ himself.' Hospitality, therefore, is an important work of our community, with a number of our monks devoting their time to offering retreats and courses throughout the year.
