The Convent is the main house and administrative centre of the Community in England. It is set on the edge of Derby in the suburb of Oakwood and about 20 sisters and novices live here. This is where we welcome visitors as well as new members of the Community.
We were given a warm welcome by the Diocese of Derby when we moved here in 1990. We maintain close links with the Cathedral, city centre parishes and many parishes elsewhere in the surrounding Derby and Nottingham area.
From the Convent we are also involved in outreach activities that include; retreat-giving, parish work, hospital volunteering, children’s work, and spiritual guidance.
The garden surrounding the Convent provides a place and peace and beauty both for the community and our visitors.
