At the request of Dom Mark-Ephrem M. Nolan, OSB, Superior of the Benedictine Monks, Rostrevor, Most Reverend Dr John McAreavey, Bishop of Dromore, blessed the cornerstone of the future church of Holy Cross Monastery in Kilbroney Valley.
A scroll which outlined the community’s history since its arrival to Northern Ireland, was read by Dom Eric. This was then co-signed by the Bishop and the Superior of the Monastery, before being sealed in a metal container and inserted into the cornerstone.
After the blessing of the site of the future church, the cornerstone was consecrated and anointed with holy oil.
