EBC Bursars visit Downside

We were happy to welcome the bursars of the houses of the English Benedictine Congregation here at Downside.

Downside Abbey Trust’s Chief Executive, Mr Scott Treloar, hosted the event on behalf of the Monastery. Bursars from Ealing, Stanbrook, Ampleforth, Buckfast, Worth and Douai were represented as well as our friends from Quarr and Mount St Bernard. We also had representatives from Pluscarden, Minster Abbey and Glenstall in Ireland. The conference was concluded with a tour of the Abbey’s Archives and Library led by Dr Simon Johnson who noted to Fr Oliver of Douai that, ‘other libraries were available within the Congregation!’
