Six new Associates were welcomed into the British Province of the Sisters of St Mary of Namur during a weekend of prayer and reflection in the Sisters’ community in Harrow, north-west London.

Formed in Namur in Belgium in 1819, the Sisters are now an international congregation with communities in Brazil, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Rwanda, as well as Harrow and Liverpool. Associates share the Sisters’ prayer and work expressed in their motto: “In simplicity and joy we offer all to God.”
