A taste of Pluscarden Abbey

Fr Augustine of Pluscarden Abbey writes:
I am organising a retreat for single Catholic men aged 18-40 at the Abbey from 4th - 8th June 2007, to give them a chance of sampling the monastic life within the cloister. Those who come will follow our daily timetable, join us in choir for the Divine Office and private prayer, eat with us in the refectory and work with us; there will also be talks and discussions on various aspects of the monastic life and instruction on how to practice lectio divina. We are not charging for the retreat and there are cheap flights from England to Aberdeen and Inverness whence buses can be got to Elgin - we are six miles out of the town in a secluded valley.
To book on the retreat, contact the Abbey by email
