Douai Abbey: The Monastery of St Edmund, King & Martyr
Published by in News ·
» Yesterday the delegates to General Chapter departed after their meeting here to prepare for the General Chapter in July at Worth Abbey. Also here were the Abbot President, some of the officials of the congregation and the abbots on the president's regimen (his council). To mark their presence among us the Douai brethren hosted a soirée on Tuesday night which saw long, lively and happy discussions. We pray for them all a safe return to their monasteries.

» Today the community marks the golden jubilee of priesthood of Frs Finbar and Boniface. The abbot will celebrate Mass at midday and preach and a number of the mission fathers are coming down for the occasion. After Mass there will be a festal lunch at which guests of both jubilarians and friends of the community will join us. May their day be a blessed one. Ad multos annos!
