Brentwood Ursuline Network

Brentwood Ursuline Network is an informal group of women, married, single; retired, working; younger, older; mostly living in the Brentwood and Basildon areas, but some much further away; who share faith and prayer, and aim to live the Gospel in their everyday lives in the spirit of Angela Merici supported by, and supporting, the Brentwood Ursuline Community; with the possibility of making a formal commitment for a year or longer.


Our monthly newsletter, Ursulinews, contains short reflections on texts relating to St Angela and the Sundays and feast-day liturgies, a diary of events and significant news of the Community and its friends.

A 'core' group meets about three times a year to plan events, ranging from Study Days, retreats and opportunities for 'quiet time', Reading Group, to various social gatherings and outings. Some of us meet together once a month to share our reflections on the Sunday readings and other topical issues related to our life as women living our Christian faith in our social context.

We review and evaluate regularly and seek to reach out to other women who may benefit from being in the Network.
