Come and See Weekends 2024 at Holy Cross Abbey




Welcome to
Holy Cross Abbey Whitland

Holy Cross Abbey is set on the side of a hill overlooking a broad valley with the Preseli Hills as a backdrop beyond. It is a place of peace and great natural beauty and provides a perfect environment for a monastic life of prayer and praise: a place of rest and refreshment for those who visit us. We are about 5 hours from London, 2 hours from Cardiff, by road or rail, but a million miles away if you compare the bustle of capital city with the gentle landscape of Pembrokeshire in West Wales.

Please Pray for Peace

Almighty father,
You are the Lord of history, and we place in your hands the distress of our times.

Do not allow war cries and threats to triumph,
but enlighten us that we may recognise the human family across the world as one family.

Welcome those who have died,
comfort those who mourn,
be with refugees and those driven from their homes,
heal the wounds of those injured in body and soul
and be close to all who seek to aid them.

Send your Holy Spirit over the earth,
the Spirit who defeats division,
who overcomes war.

Now, Lord, please come to our aid,
guide us into the way of peace, trusting always in
Your Word, Our Lord Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns for ever and ever,
Amen.

Weekly Thought

In what way is the faith of the Church one faith alone?

The Church, although made up of persons who have diverse languages, cultures, and rites,
nonetheless professes with a united voice the one faith that was received from the one Lord
and that was passed on by the one Apostolic Tradition.
She confesses one God alone, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,
and points to one way of salvation.
Therefore we believe with one heart and one soul all that is contained in the Word of God,
handed down or written,
and which is proposed by the Church as divinely revealed.
