I am Winifred Morley. I met the Cenacle in Liverpool when I was a small child and as a teenager joined the Youth Club which was great. I have lived in most of our Communities during my 50+ years in the Cenacle. My ministry has been in retreat work and spiritual direction, and working on various courses, training spiritual directors. To save me becoming too heavenly minded I am the treasurer, which keeps me firmly rooted in the reality of life
