Events - Monastic Afternoon at Tyburn Convent

This was a lovely occasion from which all those who attended benefited. The following are reflections from one CaAPA member:

“Overall I enjoyed the retreat. I was very interested to see the convent and enjoyed the sister’s informative talk. Really liked Fr Vlad’s sermon during Mass too. I did like the concept of reading during lunch as it was good to have a taste of monastic/convent life where silent meals with readings are commonplace. I would say that people need to be reassured that it is ok to carry on as normal – there were many of us gingerly unwrapping their sandwiches. As someone who read myself I would have no problem with people coming and going or rustling. Vespers with the nuns…another story!!”
