This is a first for Colwich – another step in our illustrious history!

We – the novitiate at Colwich Abbey in Staffordshire, UK – are eager to share something of our life with those who might be interested. So we asked, and our Novice Mistress gave us permission to set up a blog so that we can share with you a bit about the day-to-day life in our monastery.

At the moment we have two postulants, one of whom will be clothed in the Benedictine habit next month. In addition, three women have made or will be making aspirancies in the near future.

We’re new to this blogging business, so watch this space! And more importantly, please keep all of us here at Colwich in your prayers!
