|Mass on Sunday: the Sisters are behind the grill and net curtain on the left.|
I take a brief break from my ongoing series of posts to put some photos of my recent (and first ever) trip to Lanherne Convent: that is, the former Carmel now occupied by a community of the Contemplative branch of the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate.

|Mass on Monday: the Sisters are now directly facing the Altar, and the laity looking side-on.|
The convent is rather large, but not easy to see from outside. And, obviously, I couldn't go inside. I did speak to the Superior in the 'Speaker Room', with the double grill.
