Sisters Lisbeth and Vivienne Joy

Golden Days

It was a great joy to celebrate with Sisters Lisbeth and Vivienne Joy last Thursday on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of making their Profession under vows in CHN.

Sister Vivienne Joy had been able to spend a few days with her brother at the Convent the previous week and sister Lisbeth’s sister and brother-in-law came from Sweden for a short holiday encompassing the anniversary day itself.

The two golden girls received a special blessing at the end of the Thursday midday Eucharist and we sang the hymn ‘O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder’, which has a tune sung in Sweden.

How great thou art, how great thou art!!


Sisters Jean Mary and Diana

No to Fracking

Sisters Jean Mary and Diana from the Community's Longsight house last Sunday attended the Service of Prayer for the Beginning of the Labour Party Conference held at St Ann's Church in Manchester City Centre.

As they approached Piccadilly Square after the service they came across a peaceful, but busy protest and were asked whether they agreed with fracking. On replying in the negative they were asked to carry this banner and were soon the focus of the camera's attention.


Fellowship Day September 2014

This annual gathering of those members of the Fellowship who were fit enough to travel was held on 6th September at the Convent.

This year our speaker spoke of her experience as a prison chaplain, and of working with those on the margins of society in a variety of circumstances. Her passionate message that we are all one in Christ - all with our part to play in building up the body of Christ, was challenging and led to further discussion over the lunch which followed.

The Fellowship Meeting after lunch enabled up-to-date news of the Community to be shared, as well as a report of the current activities of the Fellowship and a chance to share news of members who had not been able to attend this year.

A short period of quiet reflection preceded the celebration of the Eucharist, during which Sisters and FHN members were able to re-dedicate themslves to the service of God, in the power of the spirit, to the glory of the Holy Name of Jesus.
