A Nun's Story

Sr Agatha Leach of the Congregation of Jesus, a member of the Bar Convent community, has collaborated with the writer Richard Newman to write her biography. In interviews with the Yorkshire Post and The Guardian she recalls her upper class upbringing in the 1930s and 40s, her first encounters with Catholicism and religious women, falling in love, her eventual entry into religious life, saving the Bar Convent - and more!

Sr Agatha was also interviewed by Graham Norton on Radio 2 - you can listen to this here (available until 5th February, the interview starts around 2 hours 8 minutes in)
