Taize - Thursday 21st February @ 7.30pm


Come and join us for our Taize prayer Service in the quiet splendor of St John's Lane.

Our prayer involves chant, scripture, meditation and contemplation, and is open to all faiths.

Our meeting lasts no more than an hour and light refreshments will be served afterwards in the Priory.

We look forward to giving you a warm Augustinian welcome.

New Year New Start?


January is traditionally the time of year when people decide to make changes/amendments/improvements in their lives. It is a time when people plan for the year ahead, deciding where they want to be by the close of 2019.

If you are thinking along these lines then perhaps you are searching for a deeper, more meaningful lifestyle choice. 

 Perhaps you have some questions about Augustinian religious life and the priesthood?

If you would like an informal chat about your vocation, please contact Fr Colm O'Mahony, OSA (Vocations Director) on 0868845747 or email him on colmomahony@hotmail.com

Alternatively, speak with any of our friars and they will be delighted to advise you.

Happy New Year!!!!
