the Beguines


Let’s Begin with the Beguines...

Marcella Pattyn died on April 14th, 2013, and with her died a reli­gious way of life that had survived for more than 800 years.  Her enclosed commu­nity of sisters was not a convent — but a “beguinage.”

This section is about “non-conven­tional” monastic living.
