Our Mission

The mission of COLW is to foster a culture of vocation in the Church and society by helping people to respond to God’s call in their lives.

This involves many ministries, including spiritual direction, vocational accompaniment, offering talks for young people in schools and parishes and hosting retreats and conferences.

At the moment, we are a small community and our priority is to provide a solid formation for each member so that they can go on to help others in their spiritual journeys. This is our first mission: the transformation of our own hearts so that we can live our vocation to the fullness of life and love and radiate Gospel values. Flowing out from this is the work we do now at Abbotswick and, shortly, at Walsingham.

As the community grows we hope to develop our ministry further and thereby respond to the many requests we receive.
