Thursday 18th April, the Community will be praying Vigils and Compline privately.

The Stanbrook Abbey community now at Wass traces its roots back to seventeenth-century Flanders where it was founded by nine young English women (including a clutch from Yorkshire) in exile. Imprisoned during the French Revolution, a small band of survivors returned to England in 1795, settling in 1838 at Callow End, Worcester. Another 170 years brought the move to North Yorkshire.
