About Us

We at St Joseph’s Prayer Centre respect and support, through our gift of hospitality, the variety of faith traditions and spiritual paths on which people find themselves today.

The faithfulness to the inner stirrings of the Spirit of God of our Foundress, Frances Taylor (Mother Magdalen Taylor), is an inspiration for us, as we welcome and support each individual searching to find his or her direction in life.

The Manager of St Joseph’s Prayer Centre is Sr. Nora Coughlan.

“My background has been in the field of education. During my career I have been privileged to work with young people of all ages.

Since retiring from the teaching profession I have had experience of working in retreat centres as well as in university chaplaincies in both London and Oxford. I also spent a short time teaching in a secondary school for girls in a remote area of Kenya.”
