Hi

 

Has anyone communicated or discerned with this lovely community of Benedictines?

I know the nuns a little as I used to do my individual retreats with them.

 

The community is young and vibrant and attracts vocations - the Sisters have made various foundations in the last few years.

A good friend of mine has discerned with them and is very good friends with the sisters (she's on PM actually, kg94). She always said wonderful things about them.

 

I did enquire with them and still have the materials they sent me, including their DVD, and if you wanted them I would be happy to pass them along.

They look lovely. I am hoping to make a retreat there. Not specifically for discernment, Just a simple initial retreat.

I visited them just two months ago! I stayed a week and had a lovely time. Very peaceful and beautiful. The nuns are so kind, and there is so much history in their London convent. I could imagine myself there, but God has made it very clear to me that I am a Dominican, not a Benedictine. :)

Okay, so here is the 20 million dollar question. Does anyone know if they are open to older enquirers? Y'know, just in case I might, possibly, maybe, theoretically be tempted? Just asking. Y'know, Purely out of curiosity.  :paperbag:  :pigsfly:

I have responsibility for an infirm, older relative. So I do not know exactly when I will be free to enter. But it is good to know what might be possible... :)

I just wanted to add that blog post was written by the sisters, with the help of my friend who I mentioned before (she and I co-write that blog) so it's solid info. :)

Yes, they are!  I am past 49, shall we say!, and they definitely are!  A GREAT book to read is called "Tyburn Hill of Glory" written by the nuns on their foundress, Mother Mary of St. Peter/Marie Adele Garnier which I had but sold and I had read a few times!  It's at Amazon:  http://www.amazon.co...n hill of glory

 

I had a copy with a lot of black and white pictures.  It is the story of her life and the founding of Tyburn.  Definitely get it.

You are all wonderful. :)

I spent 5 1/2 years in the community in London and took temporary vows.I left at the end of that time. I am happy to discuss my time there, off the board or on the board, if you wish.

PS Sorry that font was so tiny!

 

I agree that the principal vocation/charism of the Tyburn community - Adoration of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the exposed Blessed Sacrament - is beautiful.

 

My concern is that this vocation is no longer being faithfully lived by the congregation because of the rapid increase of new foundations which are maintained by only a few sisters.

 

There has been a truly astonishing number of departures of perpetually professed sisters from Tyburn in the last ten years, many of whom had been professed for more than 15 years.
