The community of Notre Dame Priory is on retreat all this week. Fr Mark Bachmann from Clear Creek is giving us a series of conferences based on Dom Paul Delatte's doctrine of the monastic life. Dom Delatte, who was the third abbot of Solesmes, wrote among other things a massive commentary on the Rule of St Benedict. Under his guidance we are in good hands.

Below is a picture of the community with Fr Bachmann at the summit of Mount Hartz, Tasmania during our recent quarterly outing. Keep the monks in your prayers this week please (but not just this week!)
