Thanks to Tony Caffrey of Caffrey's Stone in Drogheda, visitors and passers-by can now identify the entrances to Silverstream Priory. Tony was here last week to install two beautiful granite signs on the stone wall facing the road.

Slowly but surely the work of restoration, renovation, and adaptation of the monastic buildings is progressing. We are blessed to have Frank Brennan leading our team of volunteer labourers.

Anyone interested in volunteering his time and skill can send us a message via the contact page on our monastery website. We need tradesmen of all sorts, in particular:

• plasterers
• electricians
• joiners
• landscapers
• gardeners
• painters
• blocklayers
• floor refinishers

We are happy to receive online donations for tools and other construction needs. See the DONATE ONLINE option on our website.

Maternal Heart of Mary.jpg

This painting of the Maternal Heart of Mary, commissioned by the Venerable Mother Mary Potter in Rome in the 1890s, has now found a home in our temporary monastic Oratory. The painting was the gift of a family dear to the monastery. You will note the green land and blue sea under Our Lady's feet. It is very evocative of our location here in Stamullen, close to the Irish Sea.

As of Pentecost, 27 May 2012, a revised horarium is in effect at Silverstream Priory. Please visit our website for the details.

Please note, in particular, that Holy Mass is at 10:00 a.m., every day of the week except Monday, when it is at 9:00 a.m. Vespers is at 6:00 p.m. daily, with Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament following on Thursdays and Sundays.
