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

While prayer is our main work, we need to support ourselves by the labour of our hands.

Various arts and crafts are practised: book-binding, calligraphy, weaving, painting, photography and handcrafts. The community has a strong literary tradition, and hospitality is an important aspect of our work, though challenging while we await the building of a monastic guest-house. As an extension of our hospitality, we run some holiday lodges. Then there are the usual household tasks of cleaning, cooking, making and repairing our clothes.

When they live by the labour of their hands,

they are truly monks.

A selection of Sr Julian's calligraphy and art work are available in the shop.
