St. Cuthbert

Monday, March 23, 2020

7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

St. Scholastica Monastery

St Cuthbert is perhaps the best loved of all the Celtic Saints in Britain. He lived in a time of religious and political division. As Prior of the monastery on Holy Island he maintained peace and stability in turbulent times. He was a teacher, a soul friend to many, and had countless  endearing interactions with the animals and sea creatures that lived around him. He sought the life of a hermit but was repeatedly called to public office. His life epitomized many of the special qualities of Celtic Spirituality.

This evening’s program will be in two parts. For the first hour we will look at St. Cuthbert’s life and how he responded to the challenges of the times. After a break we will explore the land that St. Cuthbert lived and worked in, with a slide show and discussion of “St Cuthbert’s Way.”


Facilitator:   Val Beale grew up in England and has a deep love of the Celtic heritage.  She has spent many weeks on the Island of Lindisfarne, and recently completed St. Cuthbert’s Way, a long distance path which crosses the borderlands of England and Scotland to end on Holy Island.
