GRAVEYARD SURVEY: A survey and map of the old graveyard in Ruan has recently been completed. It high lights the fact that there is quite a bit of ground available for future burials. The map and a list of families associated with each plot is displayed at the back of the Church. Please take a little time to check that your family plot is correctly recorded. Help in identifying unmarked graves would be much appreciated as would any other comments or corrections. Full inscriptions on all headstones have been recorded and photographed and will be available in book form shortly.

Two new entrants joined us this year and another enters with us next week.  We are thankful for all God's blessings to us as we continue to follow our vocation journey in the Cistercian way of life.  Visit our website www.glencairnabbey.org which we regularly update to provide news, information and insights about our Cistercian way of life.
