The monastery hosted the Sacra Liturgia summer school from 5-20 July. More than 50 people from over 10 different countries participated. The monastery was privileged to host Archbishop Thomas Gullickson, Apostolic Nuncio to the Ukraine, for some days at the beginning of the summer school. His Excellency pontificated at Sunday vespers, lectured and received tuition. His own blog post about his visit can be read here.
The monastic offices and Holy Mass were sung each day, and pilgrimages were made to the relics of St Mary Magdalen at St Maximin la Sainte-Baume, to the chapel of Notre Dame de Miremer, to the Abbey of Le Thoronet and to the relics of St Roseline of Villeneuve.
On Friday 18th July Bishop Dominique Rey came to celebrate pontifical Mass at the throne with the assistance of local clergy and participants in the summer school. At a dinner following the Mass Bishop Rey expressed the hope that the summer school will become a regular feature of the monastery's apostolate.
