Dramatic Retreat at Minster

Following the success of our Theresian mystery play "Divine Comedy" last year, some of the young people of the parish went to stay at Minster Abbey in Thanet for a few days, where we worked on some new ideas for a future production, based on the Road to Emmaus. We were warmly welcomed by the Benedictine nuns, who spoke to us about their life and made us able to participate in the monastic Liturgy of the Hours. They joined us for pizza on the final night, and were kindly appreciative of our dramatic efforts. There was also the opportunity to sample the delights of the English Channel at Broadstairs!
