Alongsiders

 

Have you ever asked 'What do nuns do all day?'

 

Are you looking for an experience of a different kind of living?

 

Are you interested in experiencing life within a religious community at a deeper level?

 

There are many reasons for people to want live alongside the sisters.  

 

Some may want to take a little time out from the busy hectic world, to step back and take a breath.

 

Some may come to take stock of where they are, perhaps to explore a calling or to consider a life changing decision in a place where there is a slower, quieter pace of life with time to sit and just think.  

 

The convent is also an ideal place for a sabbatical or if space and quiet is needed to complete a thesis or pursue studies.

 

In addition to attending the Offices with the sisters you will usually be asked to help out with the day-to-day household duties; perhaps answering the telephone, helping with guests, or helping out in the gardens.  

 

You will also get to know the sisters - we are very human people!

 

The only thing the sisters require is the gift of your time - in exchange we offer an insight into a different way of life.

If you would like some more information or are interested in living alongside please write to the Assistant Provincial at the Convent.
