During his visit in August 1871, the bishop administered confirmation to almost 200 persons. The community at the retreat was also growing and by 1879 consisted of nine priests, eight lay brothers and four clerical brothers. Six years later a newspaper article stated that there were 26 religious clerics and 14 students resident at the Sutton Monastery.

    @HORT why do you actually watch Rugby league,.....is it so you can tell others what the officials have got wrong (in your opinion) or do you actually get any other sort of enjoyment out of it?
