Hello and Welcome.

Hello and Welcome to this Ty Mam Duw children’s Blog.

I am Sr Anežka and I will be writing here each week to tell you about Jesus, our Franciscan way of life and a little bit about my own personal journey. 

I hope you will join me on this voyage to discovering Jesus and growing in love of Him. I am very happy to be able to share with you my thoughts and I hope that over the weeks we can get to know each other and Jesus a little better. 

This blog can be used in any way that you wish. Read by kids and kids at hearts. Read by parents and grandparents to children as bed time reading. My only wish is that, you will have fun and in having fun get to know more about Jesus. 

As I said, my name is Sr Anežka, I’m a Poor Clare Colettine sister at Ty Mam Duw (this is Welsh meaning ‘the house of the Mother of God’) I’m not Welsh, I’m actually from New Zealand. Do you know where that is? It’s a whole world away from Wales and the UK. I came all the way from little New Zealand to little Wales so that I could love Jesus in the best way that I knew how. I wanted to be Jesus’ bride, and belong totally to him. 

I live in a little monastery with 13 sisters, two puppies and a dog. Squirrels, moles, birds and the occasional bunny, come as go in our garden as they please. 

We live here loving Jesus and praying for the world, which means we pray for you, your family and friends. We also do fun things like grow our own vegetables, bake cakes and make jam from our fruit which we grow in the garden. We do lots of others craft things which we put into our little craft room. People can come to see us, and they can come to hear Holy Mass and best of all they visit Jesus in our chapel. I hope that you will tune in here to explore the world within the walls of our cloister with me, bye for now and remember Jesus loves you and we are praying for you. 

Sr Anežka.
