Friars of the Immaculate

I had Fra Silvanus and Father Agnellus come to see me today, they are Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate, at the moment they are living in Lewisham in a terraced house, they have to sing the Office sotto voce so as not to disturb the neighbours.

Ideally they are looking for a place to be friars, to celebrate the Divine Office, to live in community, to welcome guests, from which to go out and preach, they want to be within an hour or so of their sisters in Catford. Because of their fourth vow of consecration to Our Lady they would love to have a Church dedicated to Our Lady.

It is always refreshing to meet enthusiastic young religious.
