Off to Birmingham... celebrate with the Brigettine Sisters at Maryvale, honouring the canonisation of their foundress Mother Elisabeth Hessleblad.

If you'd like to celebrate too, mark September 12th in your diary. The Association of Catholoic Women is holding a Brigettine Day at Iver Heath, Bucks. Fr Nicholas Schofield will talk about St Brigitta and the original Brigettines - they had a magnificent house at Sion on the Thames - and I will take up the story with the re-founding of the Order under M. Elisabeth. Mass, lunch, freshly-brewed coffee, prayers at the attractive garden shrine...
