St Cecilia's

I've just come back from spending a few days at an abbey of Benedictine nuns and it has made me very happy!! The place in question is St Cecilia's and it's on the Isle of Wight. Pictures and other stuff later but what a great way to start a new year!!

I found your blog by chance and let me tell you I'm really excited to read blogs like this. It is rare to find someone in the blogosphere who is so excited about Catholic Social Teaching and Dorothy Day. If you're interested to learn more, you can visit our blog. We have plenty of resources on Catholic Social teaching and I just completed a book review on Dorothy Day. I'm also starting to read her biography :)

Are you discerning religious vocation?

Either way, many blessings :)

Katerina, I'm glad you had a good stay at St Cecilia's. I was at Oxford at the same time as Sr Claire and try to visit at least once a year. Celebrating Mass for the community is daunting: their singing is so perfect, I feel a bit of a fool! But it is very uplifting to see such a thriving monastic community.

Yay for Converts. Have you written your conversion story yet?

Might you be interested perhaps in the VERT blogring? (

Having S Cecilia's Abbey on my doorstep (almost) is one of the highlights of living on the Isle of Wight.

While there, did you have the privilege of reading at Mass? If so, you would have had that stunning view of the monastic choir.

It is a real gem and is a very welcoming place. I'm so glad that you had a "happy" time.
