We invite you to join us for the CR Festival Day celebration at Mirfield. This year CR Festival Day will be on Saturday 6 July. We look forward to welcoming a guest preacher (whose identity will be revealed in due course).
CR Festival Day will be preceded by a reflective study afternoon on Friday 5 July with our Companions (CCR). All are welcome to join in with this, particularly if you are interested in joining CCR.
Following the CR Festival Day Midday Eucharist, and lunch, you are invited to walk the Stations of the Benedictine life. This is the opportunity to hear from the Brethren and others about the Benedictine tradition and its influence on the monastic pattern and everyday life.
We look forward to seeing you at Mirfield.

Visit or Stay
We welcome you to come to CR and to share in our life. Some come regularly to talk with a brother, others spend a day or two experiencing this very different environment. Individuals and groups come on retreat and pilgrimage, share in the teaching and courses we offer and join us in worship and meals.
