The Sisters are this year celebrating the 60th anniversary of the start of their work of caring for the elderly in this country. This began at St Mary’s House, Preston Park Avenue, Brighton, which is still today a highly regarded care home for the elderly. They run two other care homes in this Diocese – at Holy Cross Priory in Heathfield and St Joseph’s, Bognor Regis – as well as homes in Bury St Edmunds and Stroud. A major development recently completed at Holy Cross Priory is a retirement village, which comprises a 60 bed care home, together with 58 apartments and ancillary facilities.
