Come Apart and Rest a While

Sr Patricia Jordan, FSM

In the company of St. Francis and St. Clare we are invited to step inside a new building in rural Derbyshire, modelled on the Portiuncula hermitage in Assisi. St. Francis was named by Pope John Paul II the Patron Saint of Ecology, and this chapel has been built in sympathy with environmental issues. In the peace of the garden, in the cloister or within the simple building we are led on a journey of prayer and spiritual refreshment.
