Aylesford Men's Retreat

Today, a group of men from the parish spent a Day of Recollection at Aylesford. After beginning with Holy Mass in the Cloister Chapel, Fr Finigan gave a meditation on the first three sorrows of Mary. The Friars provided a wholesome lunch in the Pilgrims Hall, after which the men were guided in a meditation onthe last four sorrows of Mary. The day concluded with Benediction in the Choir Chapel and a short tour of the relic chapel and the chapels to the English Martyrs and the Carmelite saints.

NB - any family can visit Aylesford Priory, for example, on a Sunday afternoon. The chapels, the tea room and the excellent bookshop are open to visitors.
