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. 

This community lives according to the Rule of Our Holy Father St Benedict

and serves the parishes which the Bishop has entrusted to us.

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.

The Community's Office and Conventual Mass are according to the Ancient Rite of the Church.


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.


As well as our prayer, our Bishop has entrusted us with the pastoral oversight of the Catholic Parishes of Cheddar, Wells, Shepton Mallet, and Glastonbury. 


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


The Community of Our Lady of Glastonbury is a community following the Rule of St Benedict, founded by the Bishop of Clifton as a private association of clerics. It works within the Diocese of Clifton.
