Community of the Holy Name

How good it was to meet Sister Barbara during a recent Quiet Day at the Convent of the Holy Name near Derby.  In the 1950s and 1960s CHN had a branch house in Wellingborough.  Sister Barbara (then known as Sister Mary Ambrose) spent two tours of duty in the parish and remembers her time here with great affection.
