Charges/Donations

As a Religious Community we invite visitors into our Convent home, and as a UK registered charity (200240) we make no ‘charges’ for our hospitality.

We do suggest ‘donations’ which help to sustain the ministry of hospitality in this house, and we rely on the generosity of our Guests, but we would not want anyone to be prevented from coming to us through lack of funds. Those who are unable to offer the ‘suggested donation’ are helped by those who are able to contribute more. Additional donations for the Community’s work are always welcome!
