This year is now coming to an end, Advent is just around the corner, and Christmas seems to be upon us again and the year of Mercy is about to begin. To end this wonderful year of consecrated life we here at Ty Mam Duw, the House of the Mother of God, thought you might like a sneaky peek into our lives.

Each sister has a different story to tell, and has travelled a different road to the monastery/religious life. We have sisters from Germany, London, the Philippines, New Zealand and all over England, sisters who were students, teachers, nurses, and volunteers, before they entered. They had degrees in biology, midwifery, music and many more. We have sisters who were cradle Catholics, Protestants, Anglican and Atheist before they entered here in Hawarden to join their lives to God.

So we thought that each week we would give you the chance to meet a different sister and hear a bit about her life, and what lead her to this place, a journey from the world to a life with God.

Next week meet Mother Damian and hear what she has to tell you about her discovery of God. Until then know you are in our prayers. Sr Anežka
