Ireland’s New Traditional Benedictine Monastery
The monks’ new monastic house: the former Visitation Monastery in Stamullen, Co. Meath
In a comment today on a previous post announcing that the Benedictine Monastery of Our Lady of the Cenacle in Tulsa are moving to Ireland, a member of the community, Fra Benedetto, kindly directed me to their first newsletter, which explains why they are moving:
Rorate Caeli notes that the founder, prior, and currently the sole priest of the Monastery, Dom Mark Kirby OSB, celebrates exclusively the Traditional Latin Mass and his page on vocations also describes the monastery’s liturgical life as:
• Holy Mass (Usus Antiquior) and the Divine Office celebrated in Latin and Gregorian Chant.
• bringing to the forms of the liturgy a diligence and beauty worthy of the holy mysteries.
This is a very exciting development. Please support the monks with your prayers and by other means if you can.
