Community links up with the Ty Mawr Convent

Following an invitation from the SSC Sisters at Ty Mawr we today spent the afternoon with them, we joined them for tea and stayed for Vespers.

The Prior, Canon Mark Soady commenting on the visit said, “Being a ‘New Monastic Community’ it was good to spend time with the only Anglican ‘Traditional Religious House’in the Diocese and to share about life in Community. They have much to teach us about the contemplative life, but they were also very interested in the work of outreach we do”.

Our Episcopal Visitor, Bishop Richard has been a Companion at Ty Mawr for many years, so there was already a link between the communities at that level, but today we agreed to find ways we good continue to build on our working together for the kingdom of God.


The Society of the Sacred Cross, SSC, was founded in Chichester in 1914. In 1923 the move was made to Tymawr and the contemplative life was developed and strengthened. The members of the small Community, dedicated to the Cross, live a monastic, contemplative life of prayer based on silence, solitude and learning to live together under vows of poverty, chastity and obedience.
