...we answer God's call - to discover and make known - the love of the Heart of Jesus...

FrancesI spend quite a lot of time with Duchesne community: attending Mass and helping a little in the Sacristy as needed. I visit the sick and play scrabble with those who wish. I support the John Main prayer session weekly. Most certainly I find God in Duchesne: the way the sisters are with each other, their love, tolerance and patience is truly inspiring. This is equally true of the 'carers' who are so attentive and kind. There have been many times whan I have said that I would prepare 'awards for patience' for one or another.

I am a member of Queen Mary's Hospital Chaplaincy. This involves visiting patients one afternoon per week. The Chaplaincy group meet to pray before this, sharing readings and prayers. On Fridays we also pray Compline. This is a very ecumenical experience and I am amazed at how close we are to the Anglicans. I am in touch with the local parish as Eucharistic Minister to the hospital patients. I value this contact enormously.

At home in Community I take my full share in preparing prayer, cooking, housework and just a little gardening.
