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.

Weekly Thought

To ensure that the work we have undertaken is not burnt up but rises safe and sound through our peaceful labour,
let us implore the Most High to give us that peace for our building …
For we shall become a house of prayer and peace
only if preoccupation with earthly affairs does not impede us, or the tumult of the world disturb our tranquillity.

A letter by Saint Paulinus of Nola
