Carmelite Monastery St Vincents Road

The  Sale of the Carmelite Monastery was completed on the 9 October 2023 and purchased by: Hadi SM Investments Ltd.

Subject to planning permission, the Buyer intends to retain the buildings, converting it to a  nursing home together with a limited number of new build homes.

Most of the trees, the lake and the graves will be retained.

The sale ends the Carmelites’ 107 year association with Preston.

Please pray for all Carmelite Sisters who spent all or part of their Ministry in Fulwood and especially the 6 remaining Sisters who are now members of Carmelite Convents in England and Scotland.

The photo of Bishop Paul Swarbrick and the Sisters was taken after the thanksgiving and farewell Mass.
