St Walburga Enters the Convent School at Wimborne, England

St. Walburga Enters the Convent School at Wimborne, England

As many devout nobles wanted a monastic education for a daughter, it is highly possible that Walburga went to this famous and strictly disciplined Wessex monastery. Girls studied the Bible, Latin and music. They also learned arithmetic, geometry and manuscript writing (i.e. a scribe’s most basic skills).

Let us pray that the young may grow up to know and love the faith.
