TQ2780 : Perpetual adoration

taken 3 months ago, near to Marylebone, Westminster, Great Britain

Perpetual adoration
Perpetual adoration
Nun before the altar at Tyburn Convent, Hyde Park Place. She will be replaced by another Sister in due course so that the Blessed Sacrament - which is exposed in the monstrance above the altar - will be attended continuously, twenty-four hours a day, throughout the year.

This is an enclosed order so, except in an emergency or special circumstances, the Sisters never leave the Convent. This is an other-worldly enclave only five minutes walk from the ultra consumerism of Oxford Street. The noise of traffic from adjacent Bayswater Road seldom intrudes: only the intermittent rumble of passing Undeground trains, below, disturbs the perfect peace and calm.
