We are coming to the end of our kitchen refurbishment and we hope to have pictures up by the end of the week.
Over the past few weeks, most of the community has been away to various places. Sr.Mary Stella went to France to celebrate her Jubilee, 50 years of profession, Sr.Maria and the novitiate from both houses were there with her. Sr.Hilda, who is based at Brownshill, didn't go with the rest of the novitiate as she is now in Rome for a course with the Cistercian Juniors. On the 19th of August, she renewed her vows for 2 years. Three of the community had already gone to Brownshill before the kitchen was gutted and the rest of the community bar two went to Brownshill for the annual retreat. Most of the community are now back, ready for the reopening of the Guest House.
The big event of this week is the Jubilee at 11:300 AM on Saturday. Those of you who are coming would be advised to check for local traffic diversions. There is work being done on the bridges in Carnforth (Millhead) which means it is not possible to come through Warton Village to get to Hyning. It is still possible to come through the A6 and up Borwick Lane. If in doubt, please ring for instructions.
We hope that those of you who had a break during the summer had a restful and peaceful time and we look forward to see you all again in the coming weeks.
More news will be posted next week!
