Can you help us raise £350,000 to purchase the first convent for our community?
Our hopes for the future include; welcoming people to live alongside us for a time to deepen their Christian calling, offering places of solitude for those who would like a hermit experience and supporting the local community by our presence, prayers and home visits. Since our foundation we have been blessed with the help of both the dioceses of Westminster and Brentwood and now the Shrine with providing us with places for the first sisters to start the community and to have some living accommodation. However, we do not have space to grow or welcome the new candidates we are accompanying.
A wonderful property, ‘Half Moon House’, has become available in Great Walsingham. With 10 bedrooms and a field, this would be a fantastic place for our first convent and novitiate and to welcome young people attending shrine events. It has been the home of the Marist Fathers for many years and already has a prayerful chapel. They are relocating to a smaller place in Wells-Next-the-Sea and many people have already said that it would be great for another religious community to follow in their steps.
