The Companions of Julian of Norwich grew to 40 in number last month when four new Companions were admitted: Gwynne Wright, Linda Loving, Barbara Lumley and Joan Small.

The Julian Festival has always been especially significant to the Companions – as well as marking Julian’s Feast Day, it was at the Festival in 2009 that the Companions programme was formally launched. While not being a religious community in any formal sense, as Companions of Julian they commit themselves as best they are able:
1. To reflect the unconditional love of God in their response to others and to
2. To exercise compassionate empathy in their daily lives
3. To meditate and intercede for the world for at least 30 minutes a day
4. To seek spiritual nourishment from regular study of The Revelations of Divine Love
5. To make at least one visit to the Julian Shrine in Norwich during their lifetime
if possible.
