'Friends of Lanherne' launched

I blogged some time ago on the predicament of the Sisters of the Immaculate at Lanherne in Cornwall. They have for ten years been living in a convent owned by the Carmelites, who had moved out. The sisters use the 1962 Missal for Mass and the 1962 Office. And they look the part. There's some more information about their way of life on the New Liturgical Movement. See where it is on a map.

The Carmelites now want to sell the property. The Sisters of the Immaculate cannot own property, however, and have no money. So some lay supporters have now set up a charitable trust for this purpose: registered charity 1146207.

There is now a Friends of Lanherne blog: www.friendsoflanherne.org

It is possible to donate to them online (credit card or Paypal) through the Charities Aid Foundation.

Or write to:

Friends of Lanherne,
