We nurture a contemplative life where we can be transformed in the “face presence” of Jesus and
we pursue an active life where that can be reflected to the outside community.

OUR Neighbourhood
Needs & Resource Assessment

For the last 21 days we have been doing a one hour, daily PRAYER WALK in our parish.  The radius of our parish is 1.4km.  We have been preparing the way for a Neighbourhood Needs & Resource Assessment.  It begins Monday, July 17.  We will be knocking on doors throughout our parish seeking to discover what the felt needs of our neighbours might be and what resources are already present in our neighbourhood to meet those needs.

This will help us to then strategically plan for the year ahead!  We are watching and praying to see where God is at work and listening to hear what he might be calling us into.

Beautiful Eucharist Service and Liturgy


Following the Lead of the ancients

Angela Martin, our Hospitality Director, writes beautiful reflective liturgies each week that honor Father, Son and Holy Spirit..  Each Sunday Eve we remember our Lord Jesus Christ and gaze upon his beauty.

We also invite you to join us on Sunday Evenings.
Sit with us, as community, as we sit with Jesus

The best and most important way to become connected with the life of the Abbey is to become involved in an Abbey Cell.
A Cell is a safe place to encounter the transforming presence of Jesus, develop durable friendships and be helped to reconstruct our lives in alignment with the Jesus way of being.
