An Extraordinary Mass


Saturday 7th December saw the celebration of a very particular Mass in the Shrine. It was in honour of the Benedictine Abbots Richard Whiting, Hugh Faringdon, and John Beche, together with the four other Benedictine Martyrs, including two from our own monastery at Glastonbury, Richard James, and John Thorne. 

You can see pictures and a longer account of this Holy Mass on the community website here.

Come to Mass tomorrow/today

Isle of Wight

Quarr Abbey
The Community of Our Lady of Glastonbury paid a visit to the Isle of Wight.

Needless to say, the highlights were going to Quarr Abbey, and St Cecilia's in Ryde. What fantastic places. I hope and pray that they flourish as they sing the praises of God.



The extraordinary thing about Quarr is that it was designed by a monk, for monks. So it is not only beautiful, but is exactly what a Benedictine community needs.

St Cecelia's on the other hand, though a fine building etc etc. is made and founded on the voices of the holy nuns. If you want to have a hint of what heaven is going to sound like, then go to Ryde. It is not just music, anyone can sing just music - it is the voices of heaven and earth intertwined.

St Cecilia's, Ryde
