Through words and images this book, with photographs by Valerie O Sullivan, invites you to see a year unfold in the life of the Glenstal community, to see for yourself the beauty of the changing seasons in nature and the unfolding of the Christian mystery in the annual cycle of the liturgy. Here you will see the various activities in which the community engages as it seeks to earn its daily bread.
Glenstal Abbey is home to a community of Benedictine monks in County Limerick, Ireland, and is a place of prayer, work, education and hospitality. The monastery sits alongside a popular guesthouse and a boarding school for boys, housed within a 19th century Normanesque castle amidst five hundred magnificent acres of farmland, forest, lakes and streams. more
