» The Douai Magazine covering 2020 has been received from the printers, and will be distributed soon to our friends. It is available, of course, to be picked up at the monastery reception.

It is a big edition this year, with a variety of articles and contributions reflecting the varied interests of the community and the spread of its relationships beyond the cloister.
