FCJ's at Gumley

Faithful Companions of Jesus - Gumley


The Faithful Companions Of Jesus (FCJ sisters) have been in Gumley House since the Foundress of the congregation, Madame Marie Madeleine de Bonnault D'Houet, acquired the property in 1841 for the sum of £2500!  She established a school here in Isleworth which continues to thrive today and is known as Gumley House School FCJ. The Sisters have provided Catholic education for children ever since, adapting to the changing needs of the time and responding to developments in education through the years.

Saturday 5 April 5 2008 will mark the 150th anniversary of the death of the foundress. Marie Madeleine is a woman of our time, a French woman of inspiration and courage. The FCJ sisters would like to share with you, the story of this courageous woman who was daughter, sister, friend, widow and mother and ultimately religious sister and foundress. A newsletter is available to help you get to know the woman whose cause for canonization is being investigated.

The FCJ Sisters circulate a monthly newsletter for young adults which highlights coming events, discusses faith sharing and includes articles from young adults worldwide amongst other topics.
