Supporting the Monastery

The primary mission of the Sisters is to pray and offer oblation for the Church and the world. They live a life of poverty, entirely dependant on the generosity of others. Your prayers, financial support, and generous donation of your time and practical skills are invaluable, and the Nuns are profoundly grateful for any donations, big or small.

Volunteering

Establishing a new monastery is dependant on the generous support of the whole community. There are always many small tasks to complete from basic handy-man jobs to tidying and landscaping the grounds.

If you have any skills which could be of assistance please let us know.
