Come to see Sister Florens tell tales inspired by her pilgrim cloth – and yes, she has truly visited ALL of those places for which she has a pilgrim badge!

The Sister will also bring A Relic of one of The Holy Innocents for visitors to observe.

There will also be an opportunity for an informal workshop – for people of all persuasions, or none – to make a modern secular rosary, focusing on aspects of modern life…
