Our founder members Br.Samuel Patterson and Sr.Amy Pope leave today.
They leave on a high having sat at the feet of former Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams the preacher at this morning’s Sung Eucharist. They later shared lunch with Bishop Rowan, who is also known as Lord Williams of Oystermouth.
As he left the Community Sam made another commitment, he proposed to his now fiancé.
How does a New Monastic propose to his girlfriend?
On top of the Tower of his Priory Church.
The Prior, Fr Mark wished Sam and Amy well as they moved on, “We were very fortunate in our two founder lay members. Thank you both for helping develop this concept – and enabling it to grow from strength to strength”.
