New Norcia is Australia’s only monastic town, and is situated 130 kilometres north of Perth. A historical and spiritual treasure in the Australia bush, it was established by monks of the Benedictine Order in 1847. Originally established as an Aboriginal Mission, the monks built a church, flour mills, schools, a hostel, an apiary, a blacksmiths shop, an olive shed and extensive gardens and olive groves surrounding the monastery. Known as one of the great cultural heritage sites of Australia, twenty seven of its buildings are classified by the National Trust and the town as a whole is registered on the National Estate. Today the town offers a Museum and Art gallery, a grand Hotel and the Monastery Guesthouse.

Esker Retreat Centre in Galway, Ireland has been in operation since the late 1960’s. It is located beside and attached to the Esker Monastery, home to about sixteen Redemptorists, priests and brothers. We can accommodate 40 to 72 people, in single or shared rooms. While we do not have,- as yet- any en-suite rooms, we try to make all rooms as comfortable as possible for our Guests.

Situated in central London it is hard to imagine a more peaceful urban setting for a short stay in London, a holiday from abroad or a retreat. St Katharine’s has a rich history of hospitality and we look forward to welcoming you whether you wish to come for a day or to stay overnight. We have the rare privilege of being a few minutes walk from the river Thames in the East of London but still just moments from Limehouse DLR station. A wonderful chance to step out of the city but not to leave it.

Nestled in the foothills of Mt Donna Buang the property affords stunning views overlooking the valley and surrounding mountains, in a peaceful rural environment… the beautiful setting and relaxed atmosphere has for many years been a place to find balance in our busy lives, to “come away for a while” and find peace and rest with God.

I am keen to visit Lithuania and visit some of the Catholic and Orthodox monasteries. Recently I had a note from a nun who lives at the Monastery of Monte Pacis (Mountain of Peace) near Kaunas, the second largest city in the country.

I was in Belgium recently where I visited some rather unique and beautiful monasteries (a pilgrimage of sorts?). Not many of them had guesthouses as the monks in this country survive financially by brewing beer so good that it has a huge international market. However, Belgian monks live an austere life and only brew what they need to make ends meet. Work never comes before the most important part of a monk’s life.

We had all hoped that Good Night and God Bless:FRANCE would be available at the end of May. However, I have been told by the ebook converters that because there are so many links and images in the file that it is taking them longer than they had anticipated. I do apologise and my hope is that the book will be up on this website in the next few weeks.
