From Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd September The Dominican Sisters hosted an Art and Craft Exhibition to celebrate 20 years since the Opening of The Niland Conference Centre.
Among the beautiful and varied displays by artists, was a delightful exhibition of pottery made by students at Caritas St Joseph’s.
St Joseph’s is a centre for adults with intellectual disabilities, which offers offer lifelong learning and a wide range of courses for all abilities.
Visitors to the exhibition gave high praise to the students and remarked on the gifts and skills which the work demonstrated.
Bishop John Sherrington opened the Exhibition with a moving and appreciative address. He visited St Joseph’s stall and was rightly proud of the work he saw there. He was presented with a beautiful blue pottery bowl by Sister Felicity Cunningham, the Dominican Sisters Congregation Leader.
The Niland Centre is administered and run by the Dominican Sisters to promote and support Christian Spirituality, Education and Adult Faith Formation. It is located in the grounds of Rosary Priory near Bushey Heath, Watford.
