Y13 Visit to Kirk Edge Monastery

On Wednesday, 22nd November, Mrs Otieno’s Y13 Philosophy and Ethics class visited the Carmelite Monastery in Sheffield.

The Sisters have a particular vocation to dedicate their lives entirely to prayer and live mostly in silence.

They live, work and pray together, witnessing to the reality of God and his love for the world.

The Carmelite Sisters commit their entire lives to God, as a radical response to His call. They believe that prayer is powerful.

Students spent over a couple of hours in the monastery and they were able to meet with Mother Prioress and 2 of the others Sisters.
