Foremost, Ashdown Park would like to extend our gratitude and congratulations to you as throughout 2019 our Ladies Luncheons and Country Club Coffee Mornings have raised £3,050.50 for the Queen Victoria Hospital Charity.
Now to the first Ladies Luncheon of the new year and what better way to start it than with a guest who can tell us more about the history of Ashdown Park than most others, Sister Magdalen.
For those who are unfamiliar, Sr. Magdalen Lawler has been a Sister of Notre Damn since 1961 and spent the most part of the early 1960s training for Sisterhood at Ashdown Park. However, now she is a published author with a special interest in women's spirituality and the relationship between spiritually and the visual arts.
Sister Magdalen visited us for our Ladies Luncheon in February of last year and spoke of the history of our infamous stained-glass windows around Ashdown Park. And we are delighted to welcome her back, for yet another unique opportunity to share in our history with her talk entitled 'Notre Dame - Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow'. Sister Rachel, who was also trained at Ashdown in the early 1960s, will be accompanying Sister Magdalen as they share in the memories of convent life and the important work that continues today.
The lunch will begin with a welcome glass of Prosecco or freshly squeezed orange juice on arrival from 11.30am, followed by the presentation to commence from 12.15pm and a delicious three course meal with a glass of wine per person with coffee and petit fours to finish.
