Bishop Paul says Mass at dawn in the Abbey Church (Promissory Chalice)

“It has been said that there is a vocation for places just as there is a vocation for people, for souls.” ― br. Philip Anderson, abbot

“Year by year you sanctify the Church, the Bride of Christ, foreshadowed in visible buildings, so that, rejoicing as the mother of countless children, she may be given her place in your heavenly glory.”


“The stonework threw into relief all that was compromised and dull, and kindled a yearning for one to live up to its perfections.” ― Alain de Botton


Merry Christmas!
