Glenstal Abbey Chronicle – Summer 2017

A Special 90th Anniversary Chronicle

On the 90th anniversary of our foundation it is our pleasure to share with you, friends, benefactors, parents, students, colleagues and visitors, something of the variety and richness of life here in Glenstal Abbey. In the pages of the linked Chronicle we hope to bring alive the place which we are privileged to call home.

We have come a very long way from those early days when the first Belgian monks arrived here back in 1927. What has been achieved is thanks in no small measure to the kindness and generosity of so many. The monastic community are profoundly grateful for all the blessings we have received and for this we give thanks to God.
