For Our Lady’s community, the Church and the wider community

Our long-term 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, making the well-stocked library available to people and supporting the local community by our presence, prayers and home visits. Recently we received a £25,000 donation to this project and smaller ones totally £3,000 so any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Become a founding benefactor….

We still need to fundraise to develop the property further. We aim to pay back the 20 year loan over time, upgrade the electrical supply that needs doing, provide the above hermitages and develop the prayer gardens.  Please become one of our founding benefactors by donating to this appeal. All founding benefactors, living and deceased, will be remembered in a monthly Mass offered for their intentions. You might also like to give a donation in memory of a departed loved one and have their name inscribed in the book of benefactors. Thus Mass will be offered for the repose of their soul.

Will YOU be one of these people?

Any amount you can give will be gratefully received. To give online, please use this webpage. We’d be grateful if you would pass on news of this appeal to your family and friends. If anyone does not have internet access, or wishes to make a donation larger than £100 simply download on of the forms above:

Please keep this intention in your prayers and be assured of our prayers for you also.
