Emily-Grace Sainsbury - FCL Ministry Team Volunteer

Emily-Grace started her time at Ladywell working with our La Verna community, in a pastoral capacity. She began ministry in the FCL, with a hope to share more widely the vision and values of the FMDM Sisters, whom she had come to know and love.
Emily has studied areas such as eco-dramaturgy and the effect of the virtual self on our self-concept, however her degree is in Comedy.
As such, the joy and person-centred inclusivity of Franciscan spirituality is an integral part of her Christian faith. Emily’s previous ministry has included serving on an ecumenical university chaplaincy team, chairing Leicester dioceses’ Bishop’s Youth Council, and she continues to preach and lead in her Anglican parish.
She is now also studying for Anglican ordination alongside and so her role in the FCL is in a voluntary capacity.
