Easter Triduum & Retreat 2017


begins on

Holy Thursday April 13th and ends on Easter Sunday morning April 16th.

You are most welcome to join with the monastic community for the celebration of the Sacred Triduum. For those wishing to come on retreat, as residents or non-residents, the liturgies of these three days form the centre for the talks, activities and shared meals.

Those wishing to reside at the Abbey, are offered accommodation in our boarding school which consists of shared dormitories and some single rooms. All meals are provided. Guests are welcome to arrive and register from 4pm on Holy Thursday and depart after breakfast on Easter Sunday.

We ask people to make a contribution to help defray the costs of these days, a considerable portion of which goes to meet the catering costs. A contribution of €285 is suggested for resident guests and  €180 for non-residents – a guideline only, which will of course vary depending on a person’s individual circumstances.
