With Christ in His Passion: Elizabeth Prout
Sr Dominic Savio Hamer, CP
This is the shining story of Elizabeth Prout, the founder of the Sisters of the Cross and Passion. Born into a comfortable and happy family in 1820, in her twenties she converted to Catholicism following her encounter with Blessed Dominic Barberi CP, who had opened the first Passionist monastery in England only a few miles from her home. At twenty-one she was the youngest, and the first Catholic English woman to found a religious congregation in 19th century England. At great risk to her health she embraced a religious life working with the poor in Manchester, teaching young mill girls, and founding a female institute to combine both contemplative and active life.
