Brentwood News March 2017 Edition : The Community of Our Lady of Walsingham and Abbotswick Diocesan House of Prayer
The Community of Our Lady of Walsingham will leave the Diocesan House of Prayer at Abbotswick from 31st July 2017. For some time, the Sisters have been living and working in Abbotswick and at Walsingham. They have determined that with limited numbers they are unable to sustain a valid and gospel-effective presence in both places. Bishop Alan expressed gratitude to the Community for their generous presence and ministry in the diocese and wished them well in the future.
The Future of Abbotswick Diocesan House of Prayer
Traditionally, Abbotswick closes for the month of August. There are exciting plans in formation with regard to the future role that Abbotswick will play in the diocese when it reopens at a time yet to be decided. More information will be available in due course.
