The Second Vatican Council in Rome in its decree on communications (Inter Mirifica) said that "the Church believes that its task involves employing the means of social communication to announce the good news of salvation.” This blog is part of that process by the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton to communicate that same good news about Jesus Christ.

Two First Professions for Littlehampton Franciscan Sisters
Two novices of the Franciscan Missionary Sisters of Littlehampton said ‘yes’ to the divine invitation to follow God and live life the Jesus way, the Gospel way, in Sisterhood and community.
Sister Mary Magdalene and Sister Rose of Lima made their first profession stage on 8 September 2010 at St Joseph’s convent Littlehampton. The day was a joyful occasion and both Sisters were joined by family, friends and members of the FMSL community. Br Philippe Yates (Principal of the Franciscan International Study Centre) was the main celebrant at the profession Mass. All three pictured right.
Sister Magdalene will continue her mission by taking a training course in youth leadership and chaplaincy. Sister Rose will continue her mission and studies by working with the poor and homeless.
