Barlow - Pre-school Unit

Welcome to Barlow Class!

Mrs Butterworth



Ambrose Edward Barlow (1585 – 10 September 1641) was an English Benedictine monk who is venerated as a saint in the Roman Catholic Church.  Ambrose was born at Barlow Hall, near Manchester in 1585.   In 1615, he became a member of the Order of Saint Benedict and was ordained as a priest in 1617.  After his ordination into the priesthood, Ambrose returned to Barlow Hall, before taking up residence at the home of Sir Thomas Tyldesley, Morleys Hall, Astley.  From there he secretly catered for the needs of Catholic 'parishioners', offering daily Mass and reciting his Office and Rosary for the next twenty-four years.
