Sisters of Jesus and Mary

Arrived from Lyons in the parish of St. Mary's in 1860. From their pioneering work came the foundations of the schools in the parish and work in the parish community. The Sisters are an important part of parish life by their presence giving witness "that the world cannot be transformed and offered to God without the spirit of the Beatitudes"

In 2013 the newly renovated convent was opened, Sister Nuala and Sister Judith Mary arrived to set up the house. Shortly afterwards they were joined by Sister Margaret Pole and Sister Barbara.

It was with great sadness that we heard of the sudden death of Sister Barbara on Christmas day 2014. May she rest in peace. Sister Barbara's funeral Mass was celebrated by Bishop Alan Hopes, Bishop of East Anglia on Wednesday 14 January 2015. Sister Barbara worked in the Parish, with those making their Journey of Faith towards Easter and the celebration of Baptist, Confirmation and Eucharist; with our young people preparing for Confirmation; sharing days of reflections and other times of reflection.
