Letter from Sister Valeria
Dear SMOGS,I am sending you a letter which the Smethwick Sisters sent out in December.On January 1st three of us Anglicans went to the Oxford Oratory to support our Mother Winsome and ten of our Sisters who were received into the Roman Catholic Church and inaugurated as a new RC Community named: Sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Sister Louise died peacefully in Wantage Nursing Home on November 4th 2012. Sister was born of Dutch parents in Indonesia, but the family returned to Holland and lived there under Nazi occupation. She became an Old Catholic, but in 1942, responding to God’s call to Religious Life; she found her way to Wantage in 1947
