PILGRIMAGE TO BANBURY 
 
On Saturday 30th May many Sisters gathered in Banbury. This event was to mark the celebration of the Year of Consecrated Life.  
Banbury is regarded as the "cradle" of the Congregation. Our Mission began here in 1847. 
 
The day began with coffee in the Dupuis Centre followed by Mass in St. John's Church.

After lunch the Sisters gathered outside the presbytery - this was the first house where Genevieve Dupuis (our Foundress) lived with a small community.
