Selly Park is known as the "Mother House" of the Sisters of Charity of St. Paul. It is regarded as the "heart" - where most of us first entered this community, learned the joys and challenges of religious life, deepened our prayer lives and helped us to broaden our vision of mission to God`s people.
Bishop Ullathorne, who invited the Congregation to England, when commenting on Selly Park stated that: “This house is the heart of your Community and the branch houses are but the pulsations of the heart that beats there”.
Today Selly Park is: a haven of prayer and spirituality
a place of welcome and hospitality
The Congregational Leader and some members of the Leadership Team reside in Selly Park.
