Creating a space for an experience and understanding of the Franciscan vision and wisdom for the world.

As sisters and brothers to all, we participate in making available the Beauty, Generosity and Goodness of God.
We do this by …
Being a place of welcome and hospitality.
Providing contemplative spaces for rest, silence, solitude, reflection and prayer.
Developing Ladywell as a Centre for Franciscan Spirituality.
Keeping alive the FMDM heritage and story.


This Vision and Mission is underpinned by the values of:

  • Dignity of the human person
  • Inclusiveness
  • Peace-making
  • Reconciliation and healing
  • Respect  and Care  for creation
  • Simplicity

This mission will be enabled by partnering with those individuals and  organizations  who share the prophetic vision of Francis and  Clare.
