Douai Abbey—The Monastery of St Edmund
Published by in News ·
» On Saturday last Fr Abbot confirmed 28 pupils from Winchester College and St Swithun's, Winchester, in the abbey church.

» This week Douai has been hosting the Union of Monastic Superiors, the body covering the superiors of the various monastic houses in the British Isles, including the Anglican ones. On Wednesday they visited Lambeth Palace and met with Justin Welby, the incumbent of Canterbury. Joining them at Douai was the new abbot primate of the Benedictine confederation, Gregory Polan, his first visit to us after his election last September.

» On Tuesday night Fr Hugh attended an advanced screening in London of a film soon to be released, Summer in the Forest, about Jean Vanier and some of the original residents of the L'Arche community.
