Chapel
Where there is love, there is peace
(Augustine Commentary on the First Letter of St John Prologue)

We are a Community of Catholic Religious Sisters, Canonesses of St Augustine. Our life is based on the ideals of unity, love and compassion, as expressed in the fourth-century Rule of Saint Augustine

These ideals inspire us to make Boarbank a centre of healing and hospitality where everyone is welcome.

The Community of Our Lady of Hope held their first elections on June 6th and 7th at Ince Blundell Hall.

Canon Adrian Prescott, Chancellor of the Archdiocese of Liverpool, kindly presided at the election of the Prioress.

History of the Canonesses

Sisters leaving Dieppe for CanadaHis mercy reaches from age to age (Luke 1.50)


The Augustinian Canonesses of the Mercy of Jesus have their roots in a group who, more than 700 years ago, began serving the needy and distressed in the expanding French fishing port of Dieppe. In the Hotel-Dieu, which was equivalent to an almshouse in England, they worked alongside the Hermits of St Augustine, following the same rule as they did.

Community 2016
He who accepts the common life possesses God
(Augustine Sermon 355.6)

The present community consists of twelve Augustinian sisters and two Benedictines. We also have a resident chaplain.
