The Benedictine monks of Ampleforth Abbey, North Yorkshire, have recently ventured into the world of audio media as they celebrate the release of their new podcast channel Ampleforth Abbey Podcast.

Each week a different member of the monastic community will upload a new episode of ‘Home Retreat’ in which they will offer a challenging reflection for 10 – 15 minutes. Home Retreats are offered as an opportunity to pause and reflect wherever you are.

Podcasts have risen in popularity over the years and the monks of the Abbey saw the perfect opportunity to spread God’s word and insights from their journey of faith to listeners across the globe.

Reflecting on this new endeavour, Abbot Robert Igo of Ampleforth Abbey says “It’s great to connect with new and evolving audiences and we believe the podcast provides us with an important opportunity to reach many people with the good news of the Gospel”.

Ampleforth Abbey Podcast is available to listen to on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music and Google Podcasts.
