SR EVELEEN RETREAT HOUSE

Life is busy - time for a retreat?
Taking time for a retreat at Sister Eveleen offers a precious opportunity to pause, reflect, and reconnect with what truly matters in the most beautiful and serene setting of Scarborough Hill.
In the midst of life’s busyness, a retreat creates a breathing space for you to deepen your relationship with God, gain clarity amidst the noise, and just simply rest.
It is a chance to step away from the distractions of everyday life, your demands of work and ministry and open yourself to renewal and growth.
Whether it is through prayer, reading scripture, silence or meaningful discussions, a retreat offers a gentle invitation to nurture the soul and rediscover the joy of faith in a welcoming environment.
Join us for our regular prayer times, get in touch for a personal day or overnight retreat, or register for our guided retreats.
