The Community of

Our Lady of Glastonbury

In August 2019, Bishop Declan Lang, the Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Clifton,

erected the Community of Our Lady of Glastonbury. 

We were raised to a Public Association in 2021 and our Monastery elected our Prior.


Following the promulgation of Traditionis Custodes and its implementation in the Diocese of Cliftion, the Priory of Our Lady of Glastonbury is discerning its future. 


We will remain faithful to the traditions of the Church, of which we too are custodians.

We must remain faithful to the Office and to the Holy Mass.

It was for this that our brother monks have lived and died.  

The Community lives as far as possible in accordance with the Holy Rule, especially following the singing of the psalms according to the scheme which St Benedict lays forth.


We seek to be faithful sons of St Benedict, singing the praises of God through the prayer of the Church, and living according to the Holy Rule.


We are discerning the will of God at this time, remaining faithful to the tradition of the Church and the life which St Benedict has given to us.


We live with our eyes fixed on the eternal, contemplating our mortality and praising God, our master and our Lord.
