Episode Summary

EDIT
Ambrose
AIRED:
Mother Ambrose is the kind, gentle and firm but loving Mother Superior at the Catholic convent of Santo Spirito. She treats everyone with respect and gains the same in return, both from the nuns and from the girls who are students at the school.

It is 1966, and there are many changes in the wind as the aftermath from 'Vatican II' begin to seep into Catholic organisations throughout the world. While Mother Ambrose is keen to embrace these changes, including lighter, shorter and more convenient habits for the nuns to wear, and the permission granted from Rome for nuns and priests alike to start taking some matters into their own hands and making choices for themselves, others among her flock, such as Sister Agnes and Sister Philomena are not so happy.

Mother Ambrose must deal with all of these matters as well as try to come to terms with the death of her beloved father and her growing attraction to Ian McGregor, the first lay teacher (and certainly the first male) ever to ever be employed at the school.

Mr. McGregor is a big hit with the students but Mother Ambrose is caught in a strong position of conflict as she attempts to work out how she herself feels as she questions her position, her faith and her ability to keep her vows. She must also fight with parents and with Sister Agnes, all of whom wish her to get rid of the new teacher when he expresses political views which seem to contradict those of traditional Catholics.moreless
