“All guests who present themselves are to be welcomed as Christ, for he himself will say: I was a stranger and you welcomed me”
(’Rule of St.Benedict’)
We have committed to a new development plan at Kylemore. Aligned with our existing Visitor Centre and Monastic Church, we will continue our Benedictine mission of hospitality through the phased development of a modern, residential retreat centre at Kylemore. In addition to our day retreats, the new centre will welcome residential retreatants in groups or as individuals for a time of silence, meditation and liturgical and contemplative prayer in the inspiring and healing surroundings of Kylemore. We also continue our mission of education through our partnership with the University of Notre Dame in its Global Centre at Kylemore.
