Where there is love, there is peace (Augustine Commentary on the First Letter of St John Prologue)
We are a Community of Catholic Religious Sisters, Canonesses of St Augustine. Our life is based on the ideals of unity, love and compassion, as expressed in the fourth-century Rule of Saint Augustine.
These ideals inspire us to make Boarbank a centre of healing and hospitality where everyone is welcome.
Boarbank Hall is situated near Grange-over-Sands in southern Cumbria, on the edge of the Lake District, with a fine view over Morecambe Bay.
St Augustine on his mother’s refusal to indulge in gossip
Another great gift with which you endowed that good servant of yours, in whose womb you created me, my God my mercy was that whenever she could she reconciled dissident and quarrelling people.
She showed herself so great a peacemaker that when she had heard from both sides many bitter things, ...
Monica would never reveal to one anything about the other unless it might help to reconcile them... It should be regarded as a matter of common humanity not to stir up enmities between people nor to increase them by
malicious talk, if one lacks the resolve to try to extinguish them by speaking generously. That was the kind of person she was because she was taught by you as her inward teacher in the school of her heart.
