Conventual buildings of the Community of All Hallows at Ditchingham

The Community of All Hallows (CAH) is an Anglican religious order based in Ditchingham, near Bungay, Suffolk, under the jurisdiction of the Church of England. The religious Sisters lead an active life of prayer and service, providing hospitality and spiritual direction in two retreat houses. One retreat house is situated in the Convent grounds at Ditchingham and the other house is in Norwich, adjacent to the Shrine of Julian of Norwich.[1]


The Community was founded by Lavinia Crosse in 1855. Lavinia was the daughter of the famous surgeon, John Green Crosse.


The Community announced the intention for the Ditchingham Community to close in 2018.[2]
