The Franciscan Sisters
Comforting an Aids’ orphan in Ethiopia
 Park Place welcomes people of all Faiths

Park Place nurtures a COMMUNITY that participates in work and activities to protect people, their beliefs and their environment. The community’s focal point is the Park Place Pastoral Centre, but the FSMA Congregation that the Sisters belong to, spreads to Europe, Africa, India and Brazil.

Park Place is a Pastoral Centre that encourages people on their spiritual journey, whatever that may be. The Franciscan Nuns from India who run Park Place make this Centre special. The sisters are encouraging of all Faiths, practices and developments as part of the whole, cultivating good for all and the Planet.
