Our Lady

Please keep the Staff, Sisters, and Residents of Boarbank in your prayers as the virus is now spreading around our local area.

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

Chapel altarThe Chapel today

The spacious L-shaped Chapel, combining modern and traditional features in a light and harmonious whole, offers a beautiful and flexible area for both liturgical and private prayer.

The more you sing His praise, the more you will restore your strength  (Augustine Commentary on Psalm 99 17)


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.
