The monastic community at Ampleforth is delighted to announce the re-opening of the Abbey church for public worship. While it is not a return to normal, and not even a return to daily Mass, it is a joy to be able to open our doors to celebrate the central mysteries of our faith in the Eucharist.  Click here for more details.

To video live stream daily Mass (10:00am on Sunday and 8:45am Monday - Saturday) and Home Retreat (11.00am every Saturday) please click here.

Mass and service sheets can be downloaded below.  

Home Prayers

A chance to gather every morning (except Sunday) at 10.00am for a short time of prayer led by a monk. This will be followed by a brief reflection from the monk. Join via the audio streaming link above. Most days, there will be an audio recording available at the bottom of our Together in Prayer page.

Please note the change in time to 10.00am now the school is back in session. Whilst Home Prayers will continue live, recordings will not be available again until Monday 21st September.

Home Retreats 

We in the monastic community particularly regret not being able to welcome people to stay here on retreat. We would like to offer to anyone who is interested, a series of simple short “Home Retreats” every Saturday at 11.00am. We hope they will be of some value to you and are our way of continuing to welcome you here to Ampleforth, wherever you may find yourself. Join us via our video live stream above.

Services in the Abbey Church

Following the Catholic Bishops’ of England and Wales Coronavirus guidance on 18th March 2020, public services will be private and not open to the public until further notice. Ampleforth will be implementing this from Vespers at 6.00pm on Friday 20th March.

The Monastic Community will continue to celebrate its daily Office and Conventual Mass in the Abbey Church, but, in accordance with the guidelines issued by the Bishops’ Conference, these will be celebrated without a public congregation. Much as the monastic community regrets this move, the guidelines must be followed.
