Silent meditation is part of our prayer, as well as vocal and liturgical prayer.
Brothers and Sisters in Carmel: Carmelite friars visiting us at Thicket.
We share in the life of the local villages of Thorganby and Wheldrake (our monastery lies between the two) through contact with the people who come to Mass here on Sundays and during the week.
The public are welcome to come and worship in our chapel.
We are also involved in an ecumenical way with the local villages, especially through our annual celebrations of an Advent Carol Service, and hosting part of the Good Friday Walk of Witness.
Our carol service takes place by candle-light.
The annual carol service brings hundreds of visitors to our chapel.
The local Anglican communities are regular visitors and sometimes use our chapel for worship, as do York Quiet Day Group. The bell which rings at times of community prayer was donated to us for our new monastery building by the Anglican Church in Wheldrake in 2009.
We attended the Carmelite Rule celebrations in York Minster in 2007.
We joined with other members of the Carmelite Family at York Minster
during the visit of the relics of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux on 1st October 2009.
