An intro to St Francis & Clare with Sr Joyce Yarrow
On Tues 15th December, a number of people from our nascent St Luke’s new monastic community met up with Sister Joyce of the Community of St Francis who have a Franciscan House in Southwark. The evening was organised to help us begin to explore the importance of the insights of Franciscan thinking around Christianity to help us to begin to explore what God is calling us to be and do in North Peckham. Recently there has been increasing recognition that New Monasticism is a mix of Benedictine, Franciscan and Ignatian Spirituality, so we are seeking to explore this over the next year.
This first session was very much an introduction, and there will be further input from Sr Joyce in 2016.
