Religious Vocation

“Why I came”, “Why I stayed”, “Why they left”, “Why?”. As the 75th anniversary of the foundation of Religious Life at Hilfield Friary is celebrated, we offer some flavour of our contemporary vocations to SSF: nascent, ongoing, past and future. Also included is a reflection on the meaning of the Stigmata of St Francis from the author of the forthcoming history of SSF in the European Province.
