There have been many monasteries of nuns throughout British history up till the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, and again up till our own day. Hence, a great body of pray-ers has supported us, and continues to do so. In the Midlands, we may mention St Modwenna, St Osburga, St Editha, to name but a few.

May they still pray for us, and may monastic life continue to flourish on the foundation which they created. May God bless you this day.
