Dear Friends of the Priory,

Greetings and peace to you all. We thank you for your support and friendship with the Priory.

We wish to update you on the situation at the Priory in the light of Covid19.  For the duration of the lockdown we have regularly carried out a risk assessment with a view to re-opening.  Our current evaluation does not afford us the option of re-opening any time before the end of August. We will continue to stream our daily mass at 9am and if you keep a check on the website, we will keep you informed of any other services we have.

Please keep our upcoming Provincial Chapter in your prayers, 27th -30th July. It will be carried out on Zoom and this will present its own challenges.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel pray for us all and all in every need and struggle.

With every blessing and good wish,


A Welcome Message from Fr Yamai – one of our Carmelite Priests
