Welcome to the Franciscan Centre Ladywell

The Franciscan Centre Ladywell is a ministry of the Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood (FMDM). We passionately believe that the Gospel Vision expressed by St Francis and St Clare of Assisi is as relevant today as it was in the 13th Century. Their values of an inclusive respect for every human person, peace-making and reconciliation, right relationships, care for the most vulnerable and poor, simplicity and care for all creation continue to speak to the needs of our world today.

We have been blessed with Ladywell, a beautiful property in the heart of Surrey which has been our own Congregation’s Franciscan haven since 1956.  Our desire is  to share this space of peace and beauty  with others enabling the values and vision of St Francis and St Clare to be more widely experienced, understood and lived in today’s world.  In the spirit of St. Francis and St Clare, our Centre offers an environment where inspirations can be shared and possibilities brought to life.
