Where there is love, there is peace
(Augustine Commentary on the First Letter of St John Prologue)

The spacious L-shaped Chapel, combining modern and traditional features in a light and harmonious whole, offers a beautiful and flexible area for both liturgical and private prayer.

The more you sing His praise, the more you will restore your strength  (Augustine Commentary on Psalm 99 17)


Sisters leaving Dieppe for Canada

His mercy reaches from age to age (Luke 1.50)

The Augustinian Canonesses of the Mercy of Jesus have their roots in a group who, more than 700 years ago, began serving the needy and distressed in the expanding French fishing port of Dieppe. In the Hotel-Dieu, which was equivalent to an almshouse in England, they worked alongside the Hermits of St Augustine, following the same rule as they did.

He who accepts the common life possesses God (Augustine Sermon 355.6)

Since 2016, we have joined with our Sisters from Liverpool to form Our Lady of Hope.

The more you sing His praise, the more you will restore your strength (Augustine Commentary on Psalm 99 17)

We regret that our chapel is not open for public visiting or services at present. This situation is likely to continue for some time due to rising case numbers in the area, and the vulnerability of our patients, and we will keep the situation under review.
