Getting there together


getting there together

Getting there together.
Part of being Benedictine is that we live in community.
We are particularly fortunate at Ealing Abbey in that we are monks of different generations.
Four monks are older than 80 and they share the wisdom they have received.
Three monks are aged between 60 and 80 and they are still giving what they best give to others.
Four monks are aged between 50 and 60 and they are busy nurturing the young in different ways
Two monks are aged between 40 and 50 and are in the height of their professional work.

We want to discern the will of God for us as a Benedictine monastic community and carry it out under God’s direction and with God’s help.

We will travel as slowly as we need in order to journey with all the members of the monastic community.

We also want to invite and inform those who wish to journey and work with us until we arrive at our journey’s end. We shall give and receive in a respectful exchange of talents and gifts. Each has her or his own talents and gifts and all may be presented to be used by God

The joy will be in the journey together
