Unusual guests


Three Sikh gentlemen came to stay at Pluscarden for some days at the beginning of August this year. They wanted to explore Catholic Christianity in an environment of prayer and peace. They assisted at all the Divine Office, including 4.30 a.m. Vigils, and they stayed also for our time of common prayer in silence. At Communion time in our conventual Mass they came up for individual blessings. They joined the community also for meals in the refectory. It was a happy visit for them, and they promise to be back!
