Good News

Duncan Hilton

"I feel grateful for the simplicity and depth of the plainsong, the intimacy of the circle around the altar for Eucharist, and the hospitality while on retreat. Most of all I'm grateful for the witness of men who have devoted their lives to prayer and Christian community."

In these pages, we Brothers hope to share some of the “Good News” that is the basis of our common life, as well as the teaching that forms an important part of our mission and tradition. You’ll find our sermons, available online in both audio and print formats, and a growing archive of “Monastic Wisdom” that collects special preaching series’ and writings on timeless matters.

For more timely information about the Monastery, sign-up for our e-Newsletter or subscribe to the seasonal Cowley magazine. We’re also happy to offer an online shop with printed materials and the wide array of books available from Cowley Publications. As you explore these pages, we invite you to share with us in the Good News.
