At his retirement Bishop Dominic Walker said, “It’s interesting that people exploring ‘new monasticism’ are finding ways of forming new communities drawing on ancient traditions and discovering the riches of the Benedictine rule and Benedictine principles about what forms a community …”.
We are looking at our Benedictine roots and exploring ways in which we can create a new monastic community of young people on gap year. The Community will be overseen by a Priest, who will also act as Associate Vicar of Abergavenny.
The Community will do a lot of its outreach work in North Abergavenny, a recent End Child Poverty reported showed that this area has been found to have the highest figures of expected child poverty in Monmouthshire, with 36% of children in Lansdown and 22% of children living in Croesonen being under the level of acceptable income.
