From Jess Horsfall:  As many of you will remember, I moved to Mucknell Abbey almost  a year ago to continue discerning my vocation to the Religious Life. As the next step in this process, I’ll be clothed as a novice nun at Mucknell on August 7th. This means I’ll officially become Sr. Jessica, which is both rather odd and also quite exciting! Becoming a novice means entering a period of apprenticeship to the Life, and is a time of further discernment, testing and learning. Your prayers, both on August 7th and beyond will be very warmly appreciated. The clothing itself is a private, community event, but visitors continue to be welcome at the Abbey at other times – do keep in touch! Jess Horsfall.

Saturday 22nd September, Harvest Celebration in the Park, Langley Memorial Park—12.00 pm till 3.00  pm. A great opportunity for us to connect with our community. Please put the date in your diary and be ready to sign up to help in September.
