'Monasteries are places of encounter. So, I am delighted to welcome you to this encounter with the monastic community at Ampleforth Abbey. Through this website we hope to invite you to join us on a journey of faith, hope and trust and to find meaning and purpose for your life. You are welcome and you are prayed for because you matter to us and to God.'
