Secular Franciscans, Montana House, Vigil for Life

Latest news from the Diocese of East Anglia includes the Norwich Secular Franciscans, vacancies at the Montana Care Home, and an abortion vigil.

The Norwich Secular Franciscans are holding a series of events this autumn including talks about St Francis in St John’s Cathedral.

The talks are entitled ‘Who is St Francis and how does he fit into modern life?’ and are being held on Friday November 4 at 7pm, repeated on Monday November 21 at 11am. Both talks will be held in Macs Bar at Saint John’s Cathedral. 

An event that takes place weekly is the feeding of the homeless on a Wednesday evening undertaken by some members of the fraternity, accompanied occasionally by a couple of elderly ladies who come especially from Cromer along with their home bakes. The group is looking for new volunteers.

Anyone interested please contact or Frances on 07484 634328.

Montana House in Great Barton, near Bury St Edmunds, currently has two flats available in Oakhampton House and one room in the Care Home.

If you or someone you know if interested in receiving supported care from the Sisters please contact Sr Thaya Moses on
