Marian Servants of the Incarnation
Sr Jane Louise and Sr Wendy Renate are former sisters of the Society of St Margaret in Walsingham. They were received into the full communion of the Catholic Church on 1 January 2011 at Westminster Cathedral. The Sisters aspire to continue living the spirit and charism of their founder John Mason Neale, as an expression of the rich spiritual patrimony that arose from the pastoral, theological, spiritual and liturgical renewal which grew out of the Oxford Movement. The sisters (pictured left with friends) continue to "Live Jesus" by their central charism of service to Christ in the poor and in the Blessed Sacrament. For over 150 years the (Anglican) Sisters of the Society of Saint Margaret realised this in daily prayer, the common life and recitation of the Divine Office together in choir, devotion to the Holy Name of Jesus, and in going out to meet and serve people in any kind of need, especially pilgrims on their spiritual journey in search of the Lord. The Sisters hold in special veneration Our Lady of Walsingham, the Mother of God who brought forth the Saviour, presenting the Body of Christ whose presence they adore in the Blessed Sacrament. The sisters are in private vows and resident in Walsingham.
Sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary
The Sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary were received into the full communion of the Catholic Church on 1 January 2013 at the Oxford Oratory. They come from the (Anglican) Community of Saint Mary the Virgin, Wantage, and are currently resdient with a Benedictine community in the south of England. It is intended that the community, led by Mother Winsome, will be established as a fully fledged Benedictine house in the near future. The sisters can be found online here.
