On June 11 we took time out of our busy schedules to have a quiet day. We had morning tea on arrival followed by a tour of the monastery. The resident priest, Pirrial Clift, led us in a session called “Why be Quiet?”
We incorporated the Mothers’ Union wave of prayer into the morning office before lunch in the Refectory.
After lunch we engaged in quiet reflection, prayer and peaceful recreation. We joined the brothers for a Eucharist in the chapel and then it was time for us to say goodbye and travel home with our batteries recharged.
Our thanks to John Blakemore, Elizabeth Corah, Pirrial Clift and Brother Alfred for their assistance and participation in making it such a special day.
