Saint Benedict has much to teach us about life in the 21st Century. He continues to inspire countless men and women to live the monastic life but his message is as relevant for all who are trying to live the Gospel in their lives. In this retreat we will reflect upon some of the wonderful insights contained within the Rule of Saint Benedict and see how they can be applied today.


The retreat will include a few days Ampleforth Abbey under the guidance of the monastic community; a visit to the nuns of Stanbrook Abbey, the ruins of Rievaulx Abbey, a private tour of Durham Cathedral (built by the Benedictines from 1093 to 1133), a tour of Ushaw College  University of Durham (including the amazing library), and Lindisfarne Holy Island where St. Aidan established a monastery in 635AD.
