Sometimes it is good to step away from everyday life and take in the beauty of God's creation, have a slower and free day to recharge your batteries.

We welcome individuals and groups to visit for the day to enjoy the peace of the Abbey Church and garden. We have a small kitchenette for making hot drinks, bring your own sandwiches and enjoy them indoors or in the garden.

Groups may want to plan a more structured day as well as having times for quiet reflection or prayer.

If you are interested in a day at Holy Cross Abbey please contact the Guest Mistress either by letter, email or telephone

We welcome Catholic women of any age who have visited the monastery and feel a call to deepen their love and service to God by becoming a Lay Associate, who will make a formal commitment to dedicate time each day to prayer, lectio divina and work. There are no group meetings as each person is on their own journey. If you have a devotion, please contact the Guest Mistress.

Please read the Safeguarding Statement.
