The House of Prayer is offered as a space for prayer and meditation by the Sisters of the Christian Retreat.
The Christian Retreat is a Roman Catholic Congregation founded by Fr. Anthony Receveur in France in 1789. In an age when faith and moral values were in decline, he offered to ordinary people a means of drawing closer to God. Through practicing daily meditation and making spiritual retreats, lives were transformed. After his death, the congregation continued to grow and many small communities were formed around France. Today, communities are to be found in France, England, Ireland and West Africa.
It is the inspiration and gift of this tradition that we continue in the House of Prayer today.
“Thank you for providing this place of peace and rest – so necessary in the madness of life”.
