Saint Mildred from a window at Preston-next-Wingham, Kent. John Salmon
Happy Feast to our friends at Minster Abbey! Today is Saint Mildred’s day. She was one of those exemplary Saxon and Welsh princesses who wanted a life of prayer, scholarship and service rather than diplomatic marriage. She was not the founder of Minster Abbey, her mother was, but Mildred joined the community and eventually became Abbess. She is still held in affection locally, as evidenced by this window from Preston, some six miles distant.
From all at Agnellus Mirror and the Franciscan International Study Centre, to all at Minster:
Happy Saint Mildred’s Day!
