Business Girls' Hostel For Leicester

A hostel for business girls has been established by the Daughters of Divine Charity at the new Convent of St. Teresa, Fosse Road, Leicester, at the invitation of the parish priest of St. Peter's, Leicester, Canon M. A. Gillcran.

The hostel, which is open to girls of all denominations, was formally blessed on Friday last by Mgr. Ellis. Bishop of Nottingham, who offered the first Mass there.

There are ten girls in residence at the moment, but it is hoped that the work will be extended, when a larger house is obtained.

The Daughters of Divine Charity. whose Mother house is in Vienna, have already two foundations in the Nottingham diocese. where they conduct schools for girls. This hostel is the first of its kind in the diocese.
