28 FEB, 2017. The final gathering in Newmarket Convent of our sisters in the English Mission took place late last year. For some years now Newmarket has represented home for the English Mission and has been the gathering place for decision-making, celebrations and farewells. However, after a period of discernment, and in their aspiration to seek fullness of life in older age, the English Mission decided to unburden itself of this property.
The last gathering at the Convent was on November 26, 2016, where the sisters celebrated the Diamond Jubilee of Sr Marcia Foley. At the end of January 2017 an American family from the nearby Air Base became tenants of the Newmarket Convent.
