Convent of St Louis
CB080 · Corporate body · 1842-present

A priest, Louis Marie Eugène Bautain in 1842 founded the Institute of St Louis in Juilly, outside Paris. The Institute was approved by Rome in July, 1844, but by 1850, the priests disbanded, leaving the sisters remaining in the order. In 1859, the first Irish foundation was established in Monaghan, and two years later, they separated from France on the orders of their Bishop. For the next few decades, the Irish and French Institutes expanded separately across Ireland and France. In 1903, the first Belgian foundation was established by the French Institute, and in 1912, the first English foundation was established from Ireland. By the end of the second world war, numbers had declined significantly in the French Institute, and in 1952, it amalgamated with the St Louis Institute in Ireland.

The first St Louis missions outside of Europe began in the middle of the 20th century, to Ghana in 1947, Nigeria in 1948, and California in 1949. In 1978, a mission from California was established in Brasil. The most recent mission was established in Benin in 2001 by the Sisters of St Louis in Nigeria.

1966: Stanley Smith, GSB Warden, writing to Aldeburgh

The Guild of the Blessed Sacrament (GBS) is an organisation within the Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament dedicated to promoting greater reverence to Christ in the Eucharist within the liturgy. This would have included the use of confession (Sacrament of Reconciliation) and fasting before taking Holy Communion. Members of the GBS also provide the church with practical assistance such as the role of stewards during processions and events, fund collecting and certain charity works within their parish. The GBS has a male-only membership open to both Catholics and Anglo-Catholics (Anglican Church).

The Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament (CBS) is a devotional society within the Anglican Church dedicated to venerating the ‘Real Presence’ of Christ in the Eucharist. The CBS was founded in 1862 by Thomas Thellusson Carter (1808-1901) to work for a greater devotion to Jesus Christ in the Eucharist by means of words, prayer and teachings. The CBS also strived to promote the Mass as the weekly main service and hold regular confession (Sacrament of Reconciliation), especially the form of private confession practised by Anglo-Catholics.

The origins of the CBS lay in the Tractarian Movement which gained momentum from the early 1830’s under the leadership of John Henry Newman. The Tractarians (Oxford Movement) were a group of influential clergymen based around Oxford University who reacted against secularisation within the Church of England and also wished to see the Eucharist play a more central role in the Anglican liturgy. They were greatly influenced by the liturgy of the Catholic Church and the Tractarian’s influence gave rise to the Catholic Revival, within the Anglican Church. The Catholic Emancipation Act of 1829 was also a driving force in the formation of the Movement as it had lifted many restrictions on Catholics to openly express their religion as well as allowing Catholics to enter Parliament. A longer-term aim of the Tractarians was to bridge theological differences between Catholicism and Anglicanism, perhaps uniting the two in the future.

The CBS movement was also a driving influence in the formation of the Anglican Religious Orders throughout Britain and America. Members of these orders comprised laity and clergy who lived according to the traditional monastic vows of chastity, poverty and obedience. After the religious orders were dissolved by Henry VIII’s Act of Supremacy in 1534 leading to the establishment of the Church of England, there had been no Anglican religious orders since and interest in them was rekindled with the rise of the Catholic Revival and Oxford Movement from the around the mid-19th century.
