Who we are

We are Catherine McElhinney and Kathryn Turner.

We are disciples of Jesus Christ and have chosen to follow Him within the Catholic tradition.

The website was largely born of work we did together over 20 years in the parish of Holy Cross and St Swithun Wells, Eastleigh, Hampshire, England.

Catherine is currently working in a school near Southampton. She is also a leading member of the parish liturgy group and looks after the Holy Cross Music Group in our parish.

Kathryn is now Head of Department for Spirituality in the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle in the north-east of England - this is where more recent resources can be found! She is a member of the Bishops' Conference Spirituality Committee and looking forward to the publication of a document on spirituality written by a working group of which she was a part.

Together, they have worked with others in the Portsmouth and Clifton dioceses in leading retreat days and workshops for people wanting to explore ways of developing and leading prayer and liturgy groups. At the moment, this work is in abeyance as our homes are 300 miles apart - but who knows what God has in store!

We also visit other "wellsprings": places of retreat and beauty
