Retreat at Westminster abbey

Abbot Peter joins the bishops of Western Canada in the dining room of the monks of Westminster abbey in Mission BC. Abbot Peter joined the bishops for their retreat at the Abbey the week of Jan. 6. The retreat was preached by Archbishop Paul Andre Durocher.

Housewarming get together

Vincent and Lydia, our new bookkeeper, and their family welcomed the Monks and Abbey staff to a housewarming in the newly renovated press building.

This area used to be the front desk and editors area for the Prairie Messenger and St. Peter’s press.

Last week of Advent

In the week before Christmas special “O” antiphons are used at Vespers. Each day celebrates a particular title of Jesus. Brother Basil shows Theo some symbols made by Sister Rita of the Ursulines of Bruno which were donated to the Abbey a few years ago
