One hundred Benedictine monks and nuns from communities across Britain, including the Isle of Wight and possibly from abroad, will gather in Bury St Edmunds for the first time in 500 years since the dissolution of the monasteries. 

They will be joined by 400 other people; Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury, will also be attending. 

They will join a procession into the ruins of the Abbey Church; there will also be talks and workshops in the Cathedral and Ecumenical Vespers with monastic chanting. 

Abiding Wisdom takes place on May 14 & 15.

More details coming soon ...
