Holywell Community:Feasts of St Benedict & Blessed Virgin Mary

St Bendict is important to us as St Mary's as it was founded as a Priory following his rule back in 1087. The current new Monastic Community based at the Priory follows the spirit of the Rule in our day.

The Feast day July 11th marks the end of the Holywell Community year.

The day will be marked with a Eucharist at 6pm at which:

- Founder Member and newly Deaconed Samuel Patterson will Deacon the Mass

- A Banner made for the Community House by Liz Brown will be Dedicated.


The new Community Year starts with a Service for the Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary on August 11th at 3.30pm. The Archbishop of Wales will Celebrate and the Preacher will be the former Abbot of Mucknell, Rt Revd Br Stuart OSB.
