YouCAN, a religious group for practicing young Catholic adults, have been working closely with a number of monasteries and abbeys in the UK to organise “Monastery Days“.

This is a unique opportunity for young Catholics aged 18 to 45 to spend the day at several monasteries and abbeys across England and Scotland, to pray together, bible study with a monk, friar or nun, attend Mass and enjoy time together socially. The first “Monastery Days” in the North East will be at Ampleforth Abbey near York on 21 October 2023.
