Shrove Tuesday 4th March 2014
On Shrove Tuesday evening, the Community entertained our fifty or so volunteers to a festal supper in the monks' refectory. We are grateful to our volunteers who work with us in the monastery shop, the retreats' department, the education and schools' visits' team and as welcomers and guides in the abbey church for open days and other special occasions. After a delicious meal, pancake relay racing, devised by Br Bernard, took place between mixed teams of monks and volunteers, after which we relaxed over tea and coffee. It was a great evening, thoroughly enjoyed by all present, an excellent way to begin Lent in good spirits.
