Abbot Visits Sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Wednesday 19th March 2014

           

The Right Revd Dom Cuthbert Brogan, Abbot of the Benedictine monastery, Farnborough Abbey, visited the Sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary at their convent in  Maryvale, Birmingham, at the beginning of Lent and gave them conferences on monastic spirituality according to the Rule of St Benedict.

Abbot Brogan is an Abbot of the Subiaco-Cassinese Congregation to which St Benedict's own monasteries of Subiaco and Monte Cassino belong. He is also a member of the English Provincial Council and Vicar for the Americas for that Congregation.

Since their reception into the full communion of the Catholic Church via the Personal Ordinariate last year, the Sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary have been following Benedictine spirituality. Mother Winsome, the new convent's first Reverend Mother (pictured here with Abbot Brogan) said of the Abbot's stay: "it was a wonderful opportunity to renew our friendship with Father Abbot, whom we first met during our stay with with the Benedictine sisters of St Cecilia's Abbey, Ryde. The Sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary are greatly encouraged by their deepening links within the wider Benedictine family".
