Marist Sisters UK  


“The witness we give in our daily lives is directly linked with the quality of our community living”

We recognise our communities as being vital expressions of our mission. We commit ourselves to building communities that are life-giving through Gospel-sharing, prayer and celebration.

Villa Maria

Our special mission  in Villa Maria is to the immediate community in need of care but also beyond through the prayers of the community ever committed to the mission of the Church and  of the Congregation

 Two missionary companions Sister Maz Clyne Province leader of communities in England visits Sister Sheila Mary Hunt 90+ years old, a resident in Villa  Maria Care Home.  They reminisce and recount stories of their years together as they ministered among the people of the barrios in Mexico.  Nor have they forgotten their Spanish music and words of songs and hymns  They enjoy a session of revising them having a short sing-song  together when musical strains waft from their direction.  

Assisted by Saint John of God Hospitaller Services which manages our Care Home,  with committed teams of staff our mission continues embracing all in an atmosphere of respect, dignity, an appreciation of past ministry to mission and of the God-given gift of life.


Our mission flows from our charism supporting those wishing to improve the quality of their lives by spiritual renewal. It is from our community life of integrated prayer and ministry that we draw energy for mission. Marist Sisters communities are spread throughout nine Dioceses in England and Wales.
