‘A Nun’s Story’: Book Launch with Sister Agatha

“I was excited, gloriously happy, and secure in my future chosen life.  I had always wanted to be married and have children. Now I was going to do just that. My right hand came to a stop as I considered what else I needed to say, then I began to write again: “… but I am to become a nun.” “

Join us at The Bar Convent on Wednesday 25th January 2017 for the launch of A Nun’s Story - the extraordinary true story of our very own Sister Agatha, whose early life as a wealthy heiress and debutante was turned upside down by a calling from God.

Sister Agatha will be signing copies of the book from 6.30-8.30pm. Everyone is welcome to join us for drinks and nibbles.
