Title: A Year in the Life – Glencairn Abbey
Publisher: Columba Press
Project Editor: Siobhán Prendergast, Dingle Publishing Services
Founded in 1932, St Mary’s Abbey, Glencairn, is the only Cistercian monastery for women in Ireland. In this book we get a rare insight into the daily life of the sisters of St Mary’s Abbey, who live out their lives together through work and prayer.
Most people would associate the lifestyle practices of sustainability, self-sufficiency and mindfulness as very much belonging to the twenty-first century. These practices perfectly reflect the rhythm of life at Glencairn Abbey…In this book, daily life through the seasons at Glencairn is beautifully documented by the photography of Valerie O’Sullivan and the testimonies of the sisters who call Glencairn home.
