BVM sisters receive first guests
Friday 6th September 2013

The new religious community of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, the Sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary, have received their first guests, just days after moving into their new home near the Maryvale Institute in Birmingham. On their reception into the Catholic Church in January this year, the sisters adopted the Benedictine rule, central to which is the provision of hospitality.

They will earn a living in their new convent by offering retreats and providing overspill accommodation for students studying at Maryvale. Among the first guests received by Mother Winsome and the community were two priests of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, Fr Ian Hellyer and Fr Ed Tomlinson, who were studying at Maryvale for the weekend.
