Prinknash Abbey “ORDO” or Liturgical Calendar for 2018-2019
FR MARK TALKS TO THE “RULE OF LIFE” GROUP FROM GLOUCESTER CATHEDRAL 19.5.18
Welcome to Prinknash Abbey, a Roman Catholic community of Benedictine Monks belonging to the English Province of the international Subiaco Cassinese Congregation of the Order of Saint Benedict, details of which may be found on this link:- http://www.benedettinisublacensicassinesi.org/
People of all faiths and none come to Prinknash to find peace, healing and reconciliation–or just a nice hot cup of tea! This is a special place.
HOLY MASS & THE DIVINE OFFICE
Daily in this chapel, eight age-old services of prayer are sung by the monks, whose principal duty this is.
“You sing the year” ex-General of the the Dominicans Fr Timothy Radcliffe O.P. tells us: “you sing the TRUE story of humanity”–not a story of ambition, greed, hatred, cruelty–but the story that “God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, Jesus Christ” so that we might have life in him. (Jn 3:16)
This prayer is intended to bring supreme honour and glory to God the Father, through his Son, Jesus Christ, in the Holy Spirit, and to ask God’s mercy on you, your children, your loved ones, living and dead, for peace in the world. Come and join us in the chapel, or join us in spirit, in the privacy of your own homes.

Young Catholic men! Monastic life did not end with the Middle Ages! Many of your ancestors lived this way of life, giving up property, and the right to marriage, in order to enter the service of the Lord in a traditional but totally relevant challenge to the needy world. Why not you, too? http://www.prinknashabbey.org/about-prinknash/becoming-a-monk/
Prinknash has about 140 lay associates called oblates, Christian (mostly Roman Catholic) men and women from all backgrounds, who wish to model their lives on the 1500-year-old Rule of Saint Benedict while living in the outside world. Check out the page devoted to Oblates, or contact email@example.com
