Association of British Contemplatives Directory

Community of the Sisters of the Love of God (SLG)

A contemplative community, founded in 1906, whose chief work is prayer built on the offering of the Eucharist and the regular recitation of the Divine Office. Life and prayer in solitude is recognised as an important part of the Sisters' vocation, in accordance with the Carmelite spirit of the community.

Guest and Retreat Facilities

There is limited accommodation for private retreats, for both men and women. Guest Sister: e-mail:

Oblates and associates

The Community includes Oblate Sisters, who are called to the contemplative life in the world rather than within the monastic enclosure. There are several other groups of associates: Priest Associates, Companions, and the Fellowship of the Love of God. Information about all these may be obtained from the Rev. Mother at Fairacres.
