Registered Charity No. 250256

Welcome to the Community of the Holy Name

We are a Community of Anglican Religious Sisters combining a life of prayer with service to others in many forms of pastoral outreach. We pray, work, offer hospitality and live in the communities that surround our branch houses and the Convent in Derby. Our outreach or mission is expressed in many ways; parish work, hospital volunteering, children’s work, retreat-giving and spiritual guidance.
