Try a taster day at a convent


THE Community of St Mary the Virgin, Wantage, in Oxfordshire is offering the chance for women to come and spend some time with them, to have a taste of the daily life of a Sister.

On Saturday 10 March, the day before Mothering Sunday, the convent is having a taster day for anyone who may wish to explore their faith in deeper ways.

“We want to encourage any committed Christian woman, who might want to express her faith in new ways, to come and be with us,” says Sister Stella. “We run a number of programmes for friends of the Community to pray and be alongside us. I hope that this taster day will attract you and others who may feel a calling to spend more time with God in your everyday lives. We want to hear from you. Come and talk to us,” she says.

The day starts at 11am with coffee/tea and some sharing until lunch time. The afternoon will be open for looking around the Convent, with further opportunities to be with people in the Community.

Anyone interested is welcome to just turn up at the convent on Saturday. If you’d like more information contact Marion Pyke on 0118 947 5834. the S9 bus from Oxford goes to Wantage. The postcode of the convent is OX12 9AU.
