Hi there Gearoidin…(see G’s Post - 4.16pm Yesterday)…thank you for your very real and appreciated kindness in going off and doing a search for me and then posting the information.
To put you in the picture, I stumbled across The Leaven on a Carmelite website and never having heard of them (I have very close ties with Carmel for over 25yrs now) before went off on a surf looking for info…but nothing could I find but their history and the email address you have given.
But the history did really appeal to me, so I sent off an email to the address and received a prompt reply telling me that fuller information would be arriving surface mail from the UK and that they do have remote or isolated members…in their 30 only worldwide membership.
Again I thank you very sincerely for your thoughtfulness and time. When I receive the information in the mail, I will whizz off an email to my Leaven contact and ask if it is ok to post into this site a bit more information on The Leaven…then I will return to this thread and advise whatever. They may have reasons for not wanting specific info public. I dont know at this point.
